Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization
The earliest descriptions of human chromosomes initiated the genomics revolution that is now upon us. Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization: Protocols and Applications explores the scope of what is now possible as far as documenting abnormalities associated with several human cancers. While the technology for interrogating the human genome continues to evolve, refinement of comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) using array CGH and related technologies have provided enormous insight into human cancers at an affordable scale. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and easily accessible, Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization: Protocols and Applications provides researchers with well-honed methodologies to learn these techniques for their own use in research or clinical diagnostic laboratories.
Includes cutting-edge methods and protocolsProvides step-by-step detail essential for reproducible resultsContains key notes and implementation advice from the experts
