Summary "He only monograph on cytogenetics for the pathologist, this up-to-the-minute reference/text contains the most up-to-date research findings on many important topics in medical genetics-notably FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridation)-based molecular cytogenetic technologies and spectral karyotyping. An excellent resource for cytogeneticists preparing for the certifying examination in Clinical Cytogenetics offered by the American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG). Written by nearly 30 distinguished international contributors, Medical Cytogenetics · covers the history of the field, tissue culturing and staining techniques, and clinical applications of FISH, as well as other methods for genetic studies and chromosomal analysis · supplies numerous examples and case reports · examines reproductive dysfunctions such as in-utero abnormalities, male infertility, and failure to conceive · investigates chromosomal abnormalities associated with myeloid hematopoietic disorders, lymphoid neoplasms, and solid tumors such as those associated with breast cancer · reviews means of obtaining accreditation or licenses, use of external peer reviews and voluntary inspections, proficiency testing, and regulatory oversight · and more! Thoroughly referenced with over 1800 bibliographic citations, and supplemented with a useful glossary, a large number of practice questions, and over 40 color photographs, Medical Cytogenetics is a pragmatic, hands-on reference for pathologists, geneticists, cytogenetic technologists, molecular and cell biologists, clinical and medical oncologists, hematologists, neurologists, pediatricians, endocrinologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, and primary care physicians, and an exceptional text for upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and medical students in these disciplines."--Publisher description (LoC)
