1. “Cytogenetics” by P K Gupta

“Cytogenetics” Book Review: This book starts with description of structure and function of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells and discusses mitosis, meiosis, cell cycle and chromosome behavior during cell division. Chromosome morphology, its organization and chromosome banding techniques are discussed in detail. Mendel’s laws of heredity and the phenomena leading to deviation from Mendelian segregation, genetic recombination, its mechanisms and construction of genetic map are also described. The book is useful for the students of cytogenetics and will help in conducting practical classes in cytogenetics.

2. “Cytogenetics,Evolution,Biostatistics and Plant Breeding” by Shukla R S and Chandel P S

“Cytogenetics,Evolution,Biostatistics and Plant Breeding” Book Review: This book provides a thorough understanding of the principles and applications of cytogenetics and genetics. The text is divided into Four parts. Part I on Principles of Cytogenetics deals with evolution and structure of cell, cell division and change, and structure of genetic material. Part II on Principles of Genetics provides detailed discussions on transmission, distribution and arrangement of genetic material. Part III which is on Molecular Genetics discusses functions of genetic material including biotechnology and genetic engineering. The book is useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of botany, agriculture, zoology and biotechnology.

3. “Objective Cytogenetics: A competitive book for ICAR- JRF, SRF, Civil services, UGC- NET, ICAR- NET, CSIR-NET, ASRB and all SAUs examinations” by Srijan Ambati and Rakesh Alle
4. “Introduction to Cytogenetics” by Ganesh Prasad

“Introduction to Cytogenetics” Book Review: This book has been divided into nine parts based on the relative affinities of the various chapters within and between the parts. The first part provides a brief history of the subject of cytogenetics, second part deals with cell ultrastructure and third part describes the macromolecules participating in cytogenetic phenomena. The fourth part deals with chromosome morphology and organization, fifth part covers cell division, sixth and seventh parts are devoted to changes in chromosome structure and number. The eighth part deals with the extrachromosomal genetic material and ninth part describes some important basic experimental techniques.

5. “Human Cytogenetics: Constitutional Analysis: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)” by Denise Rooney

“Human Cytogenetics: Constitutional Analysis: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)” Book Review: This book covers the basic aspects of human cytogenetic study. It focuses on the technologies available to conventional and molecular cytogenetics. The transition of fluorescence in situ hybridization to an essential tool for all cytogeneticists and consequently its use in chromosome analysis is covered in detail. Another important new technology described in detail is computerised image analysis. There is also an appendix on health and safety concerns in the cytogenetics laboratory. It is useful for scientists using basic cytogenetics and is essential for a cytogenetics laboratory.

“The AGT Cytogenetics Laboratory Manual” Book Review: This book offers a comprehensive description of the diagnostic tests offered by the clinical laboratory and explains the science behind them. It includes a compilation of laboratory-tested protocols currently being used in leading laboratories, along with practical advice for nearly every area of interest to cytogeneticists. It covers the basic components of a cell, use of a microscope, human tissue processing for cytogenetic analysis, laboratory safety and the mechanisms behind chromosome rearrangement. Some new topics are also included such as a unique collection of chromosome heteromorphisms, clinical examples of genomic imprinting and an example-driven overview of chromosomal microarray. The book is useful for researchers, clinicians, lab professionals and students.

9. “Cytogenetics: Plants, Animals, Humans” by J Schulz-Schaeffer

“Cytogenetics: Plants, Animals, Humans” Book Review: This book includes many aspects of Cytogenetics and related fields. The subject matter has been presented in an integrated way to correlate it with diverse disciplines. It contains the latest developments and concepts in the field. References are generously supplied to stimulate original reading on the subject and to give access to valuable sources. The book is useful for undergraduate and graduate students of Biology, Chemistry and Microbiology. It will also benefit researchers in the field of cytogenetics.

10. “Molecular Cytogenetics: Protocols and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)” by Yao-Shan Fan

advertisement
“Molecular Cytogenetics: Protocols and Applications (Methods in Molecular Biology)” Book Review: This book describes the new techniques of molecular cytogenetics. It mainly focuses on fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of DNA probes to metaphase chromosomes or interphase nuclei. The use of FISH has been described as a powerful diagnostic tool in many areas of medicine including pediatrics, medical genetics, maternal–fetal medicine. The book also discusses the use of these techniques by physicians, cytogeneticists and technologists. The readers get to know how a knowledge in both traditional and molecular cytogenetics is necessary to properly interpret FISH results. The book is useful for students, lab technicians, physicians and cytogeneticists.
