Cytogenetics is the study of the structure and function of the cell, particularly chromosomes.
Manual of Cytogenetics in Reproductive Biology examines the diagnostic role of cytogenetics in improving the outcome of assisted reproductive technologies (ART).
Divided into six sections, the book begins with the basics of genetics, followed by investigative cytogenetics, applied cytogenetics, recent advances, preimplantation and prenatal cytogenetics.
This comprehensive guide includes nearly 200 clinical images, diagrams and tables, and is an invaluable reference for practising specialists in genetics, infertility and obstetrics and gynaecology.
