Molecular Cytogenetics Resources

Over the past 40 years, cytogenetics has become the gold standard for chromosome analysis in clinical and research laboratories.  Giemsa and other types of chromosome banding techniques are used to definitively diagnose inherited and acquired genetic disorders. Molecular cytogenetics, a relatively recent development, permits detection of chromosome abnormalities at single or multigene resolution.
