Contains a plethora of modern adaptations to the FISH methodology
Will benefit both clinical and research laboratories
Informs how to achieve and recognize quality in the different FISH methodologies
The design simplicity and cost-effectiveness of the early Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) protocols, combined with the significant acceleration of discoveries in related technical areas like fluorescence microscopy, digital imaging, and nucleic acid technology have prompted the diversification of the original technique into an outstanding number of imaginative and useful applications, thus promoting its expansion into different areas of basic and applied research in the post-genomic era. In Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH): Protocols and Applications, experts in the field portray the vibrant complexity and diversity of the current FISH protocol landscape, providing cutting-edge examples of various applications for genetic and developmental research, cancer research, reproductive medicine, diagnostic and prognostic purposes, microbial ecology and evolutionary studies. The book is divided into four convenient sections covering the core techniques, technical advancements and novel adaptations, applications for human genetics and medicine, as well as protocols for model organisms. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective chapters, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes highlighting tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH): Protocols and Applications aims to aid scientists from across the world in applying this tried-and-true scientific technique to their own lab’s current research.
