The multidisciplinary field of automated chromosome analysis is covered in all its aspects by the 20 contributions from users and leading researchers in this book. They include evaluations of complete image-based chromosome analysis systems, currrent research into new image analysis techniques, the development of systems for chromosome aberrations scoring, automatic specimen preparation and the use of flow systems for chromosome measurement and analysis. The book draws on a sum of more than a decade of research into the automation of cytogenetics and thus provides an excellent overview of the subject. The extensive bibliography will be found most useful by active researchers and newcomers to the field....
