The training will focus on human chromosome structure, methodology, and techniques for the visualization of chromosome aberrations. Also, methods used to identify and analyse individual cytogenetic alterations: banding and nomenclature of banding, Pathology of human chromosomes: nomenclature of aberrant karyotypes; Common syndromes due to numerical chromosome changes; Common syndromes due to structural alterations translocations, duplications, deletions, microdeletion, fragile sites; Common chromosome abnormalities in cancer.
Lab work includes cell culture and chromosome preparation, hands on karyotyping of human chromosomes and Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH).
