4. “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 is designed for researchers in the field of human cytogenetics. It covers all fundamental aspects of human cytogenetic study. The new edition comes with a spectrum of technologies available to conventional and molecular cytogenetics, transition of fluorescence in situ hybridization to an essential tool for all cytogeneticists and consequently its use in chromosome analysis covered in detail. Computerised image analysis is also discussed by the author. There are also chapters on chromosome staining and banding techniques and meiotic studies, lymphocyte culture and prenatal diagnosis, introduction to human chromosomes, their analyses, and the application of cytogenetic investigations to clinical practice. An appendix on health and safety concerns in the cytogenetics laboratory is also provided.
