Description

The Role of Chromosomes in Cancer Biology provides a description of the molecular organization and function of chromosomes and the consequences of chromosomal aberrations in human development. The book presents accounts on the structure and function of the chromosome; the cellular features of primary tumors and ascetic fluid; the cytological actions of radiation and drugs and their relevance to therapy. Developmental disorders caused by chromosomal anomalies; chromosome aneuploidy in human malignancies; and viral oncogenesis are discussed as well. The book will prove to be very insightful to those involved in cancer research, oncologists, cytologists, and molecular biologists.
