The New York Academy of Sciences has scheduled for publication next month a new book entitled Therapeutic Oligonucleotides — Antisense, RNAi, Triple-Helix, Enhancer-Decoy, CpG, and NA Chips.

The book is edited by the National Cancer Institute’s Y.S. Cho-Chung, and is concerned with “various aspects of oligonucleotides … [that] can modify gene-specific expression within cells and can identify genes involved in diseases,” according to NYAS.

The book is to sell for $130.
