Atlas of Human Chromosome Heteromorphisms

This book is not a panacea. However, it does provide, for the first time in one place, a comprehensive view of human chromosome heteromorphisms, their applications, and their often speculated roles in aberrant chromosome behaviour relating to abnormal phenotype, pregnancy loss and cancer.

520 |a This book is not a panacea. However, it does provide, for the first time in one place, a comprehensive view of human chromosome heteromorphisms, their applications, and their often speculated roles in aberrant chromosome behaviour relating to abnormal phenotype, pregnancy loss and cancer. More significantly, the book is a pictorial atlas for common and unusual heteromorphisms and euchromatic variants as they have been studied both by classical banding techniques and by newer molecular or FISH technologies. To facilitate its use as a laboratory or clinical reference, plates in a pictorial section are organized by chromosome number with the most recent ISCN ideogram, summary and extensive list of references for each chromosome. A final pictorial section is devoted to FISH variants. The book is a work in progress, with submission of new variants encouraged for future editions
