Human Chromosomes: An Illustrated Introduction to Human Cytogenetics focuses on the processes, methodologies, and approaches involved in the study of human chromosomes.

The publication first offers information on the cell and its activity, particularly noting that the cell is the basic unit that forms the organs and tissues of the human body. The differentiation of cells and the process of cell division are discussed. The text then focuses on the culture of human cells for the investigation of the chromosomes.

The book elaborates on the identification of human chromosomes, including further methods of identification and the use of radioactive isotopes. The publication also ponders on the numerical changes in the karyotype, structural changes, and X chromosomes. Discussions focus on the processes of mitosis and meiosis, translocation, deletion, duplication, and ring formation, and the behavior, transformation, and characteristics of X chromosome.

The text is a valuable reference for researchers interested in the study of human chromosomes.
