Acquired chromosome abnormalities are associated with malignancy, exposure to mutagenic agents, and some chromosome instability syndromes. Their study often entails extensive modification of standard cytogenetic techniques, as well as a very different approach to the analysis of results. In addition to providing detailed practical information of the basic methods involved, this book covers the new technology, which is becoming important in the study of Cytogenetics, particularly in the field of cancer research. The interpretation of chromosome preparations is notoriously difficult in many cases, and consequently diagrammatic and photographic illustrations of all chromosome rearrangements discussed are an important feature of the book.
