This broad and high-level report examines the emerging epigenetics market.
This world market includes important biomedical product areas that will have a
powerful impact on healthcare delivery and personalized medicine. This
business report analyzes key market segments such life science research tools,
diagnostics and therapeutics.
Many people already know about DNA, genes and the human genome. The DNA code
defines the structure of who we are, our potential health and our
characteristics that we pass on to our children. Epigenetics refers to the
second code of life and links environmental impacts to a person' s health.
Epigenetic mechanisms signal how and when genes are activated or silenced.
This research study discusses the market for life science tools and
technologies that support epigenetics R&D. The report discusses important
technologies, equipment and consumables including microarray, next-generation
sequencing, PCR and other platforms. Topics such as microRNA and human stem
cells are lightly covered.
The report covers subjects including important epigenetic factors including
DNA methylation, histone modifications and others. The study discusses
epigenetic biomarkers, commercial diagnostics and therapeutics that will
foster personalized medicine. The study highlights new epigenetic
diagnostics. This research examines the current epigenetic therapeutics on the
market and drugs in the clinical pipeline. The report highlights major
government grant initiatives such as the NIH' s ‘Roadmap Epigenomics
Program' initiatives, the EU' s ‘Epigenetic Network of Excellence' and
This study discusses important epigenetics topics and provides the reader with
key findings. The data estimates that the worldwide epigenetics market value
will reach multi-billions of dollars in 2010, with a strong double-digit
growth rate. This report reviews the activities of 35 companies. The study
uses 39 figures and tables to illustrate the findings. This study includes
many valuable tables that help the reader scan the details of major trends,
market segmentation, forecast, M&As, partnerships, grant funding, patents and
This must-have report would benefit people with job titles including CEO, VPs,
Director of Business Development, Research Directors, Entrepreneurs, Venture
Capitalists, Investment Planners, Research Scientists, Consultants or Industry
