Human Cytogenetics: Clinical Cytogenetics, Volume II presents the general theoretical principles and clinical aspects of cytogenetics, a branch of genetics that deals specifically with the study of the chromosomes. The volume focuses on the clinical cytogenetics of human. It discusses the sex chromosomes and their abnormalities and the abnormalities of sexual development and differentiation; mechanism of sex determination in mammals; major autosomal abnormalities found in human populations; and chromosome abnormalities in relation to human pregnancy wastage and chromosome changes in neoplasia. The book will be a great reference book for geneticists, cytogeneticists, pathologists, clinicians, and medical students.
