Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Jochen H. Lorch, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a short, concise and surprisingly comprehensive manual with many useful hints.
Purpose: The book is a short manual describing techniques for identification of chromosomal abnormalities. These objectives are worthy and the objectives have been met.
Audience: The manual should be useful for students and scientists alike.
Features: The book covers a broad range of topics and provides many useful suggestions as well as practical guidance for the lab researcher. I liked the rather extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter. Due to the limited scope of the book, some newer techniques such as microarrays are not covered
Assessment: A useful little book which should provide good guidance for the young researcher at the beginning of his or her career. It can be a useful addition to the more extensive standard lab manuals such as Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 2001) and others.
