Cancer Cytogenetics: Chromosomal and Molecular Genetic Abberations of Tumor Cells 4th Edition by Sverre Heim and Felix Mitelman presents authoritative coverage of neoplastic processes on the chromosomal degree of genomic organization. Now updated and expanded, this book consists of detailed information on the newest advances within the discipline, incorporating an enormous amount of new cytogenetic in addition to molecular genetic information from the most recent basic and medical investigations.
Edited by two main authorities, who are actually aided by a panel of international specialists, this book contains coverage of acute and persistent myeloproliferative problems with newest findings on acute and chronic lymphoproliferative disorders. This book is a useful resource for researchers in a wide range of fields, including cytogenetics, medical and molecular genetics, cellular and molecular biology, oncology, and hematology.
In fourth Edition there are New contributors reflecting broader international authorship and even greater expertise.
– Greater emphasis throughout on the clinical importance and application of information about cytogenetic and molecular aberrations
– Includes a complete coverage of chromosome aberrations in cancer based on an assessment of the 60,000 neoplasms cytogenetically investigated to date
– Now produced in full color for enhanced clarity
– Covers how molecular genetic data (PCR-based and sequencing information) are collated with the cytogenetic data where pertinent
– Discusses how molecular cytogenetic data (based on studies using FISH, CGH, SNP, etc) are fused with karyotyping data to enable an as comprehensive understanding of cancer cytogenetics as is currently possible.
