Epigenetics Technology Market (Epigenomics, DNA Methylation, Histone Modifications) is expected to reach $8 Billion 2017

Over the last decade, genomics and proteomics have been used as key tools to discover potential drug targets and to better understand the complexities of biology. To balance research in these areas, epigenetics offers a potential opportunity in understanding the basis of various diseases in a different approach. Thus, epigenetics is study of heritable changes in genome function and gene expression had opened the new gate of biology to understand the basis of diseases and presents incredible opportunities for disease diagnosis and drug discovery.

The current global epigenetics market is estimated as $2.6 Billion and is expected to reach $8 Billion by the year 2017, growing at a CAGR of 25%.
