Description

This thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a highly praised classic, The Principles of Clinical Cytogenetics, includes the many advances that have occurred in the field. Among the highlights are a full section devoted to advances in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technology, increased coverage of cancer cytogenetics - both hematopoietic neoplasms and tumor cytogenetics - and new chapters on chromosome instability and the cytogenetics of infertility. The book offers physicians who depend on the cytogenetics laboratory for the diagnosis of their patients, students in cytogenetics programs, and cytogeneticists the clear understanding they need to carry out and interpret their test results rapidly.show more

From Reviews of the First Edition... "...an excellent comprehensive review of the basic concepts of clinical cytogenetics...recommended for any medical specialty that utilizes cytogenetic testing." -Modern Pathology "...a good grounding for anyone with a general interest in the subject..." -Human Genetics "...a real contribution to the field...should be a permanent resource not only for cytogeneticists, but also for doctors active in hematology and oncology, clinical pathologists, and perinatal specialists." -Laboratoriums Medezin "...an up-to-date window into the recent advances in cytogenetics, both molecular and clinical...recommended even for those who already have the first edition." - Journal of the Association of Genetic Technologistsshow more

Back cover copy

In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a highly praised classic, The Principles of Clinical Cytogenetics, a panel of hands-on experts update their survey of the basic concepts and interpretations involved in chromosome analysis to include the many advances that have occurred in the field. Among the highlights are a full section devoted to advances in fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technology, increased coverage of cancer cytogenetics-both hematopoietic neoplasms and tumor cytogenetics-and new chapters on chromosome instability and the cytogenetics of infertility. The book also reflects major advances in instrumentation and the transition from FAB to World Health Organization nomenclature for hematopoietic disorders. State-of-the-art and readily accessible, The Principles of Clinical Cytogenetics, 2nd Edition offers physicians who depend on the cytogenetics laboratory for the diagnosis of their patients, students in cytogenetics programs, and cytogeneticists the clear understanding they need to carry out and interpret their test results rapidly.show more
