The goal of this volume is to summarize the state-of-the-art methodology steps in the computational or wet-lab methods for epistasis. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Experimental Methods
Double Mutant Cycles
Synthetic genetic arrays (SGA)
diploid based Synthetic Lethality Analysis of Microarrays (dSLAM)
Epistatic MiniArray Profiles (E-MAPs)
Pombe Epistasis Mapper (PEM) System
Combinatorial RNA interference
High-Throughput Sequencing Technologies
Next-Generation Sequencing
Third-Generation Sequencing
Statistical Methods
Regression
Statistical Testing
GWAS
TWAS
eQTL Mapping
Multifactor dimensionality reduction
Genetic Interaction Network Analysis
High-order Epistatic Mapping
Computational Methods
Epistasis Simulation
Epistasis Visualization
Machine Learning
Deep Learning and AI
Computational Acceleration (e.g. GPU, TPU, ASIC, and FPGA…)
Cloud Computing
High-Performance Computing
Integration and Examples
Data Source and Integration
Software Engineering
Translational Research
Other Topics
Each contributed chapter is expected to present a method or protocol with parameter details for epistasis.
Each book chapter should only contain 7 sections: Abstract, Introduction, Materials, Methods, Notes, Acknowledgement, References
A sample book chapter is available at:
