  • Contains cutting edge techniques which greatly expand the depth and scope of classical invasive prenatal diagnosis
  • Features a totally unique focus on novel non-invasive approaches for prenatal diagnosis
  • Will also be of use to cancer researchers since chromosomal rearrangments are important, as is the ability to examine small amounts of material (single cells) or cell-free nucleic acids

About this book

With molecular biology now allowing greater accuracy in prenatal diagnosis given amounts of fetal material as small as single cells, a major current focus has grown in the development of rapid, cost-effective diagnoses.  In Prenatal Diagnosis, top experts provide cutting edge applications for the rapid assessment of fetal aneuploidies and Mendelian disorders on fetal material gained by invasive approaches, as well as procedures being validated for routine, non-invasive clinical analysis of cell free fetal DNA.  Following the Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, the chapters feature step-by-step laboratory protocols, lists of the necessary materials, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Thorough and state-of-the-art, Prenatal Diagnosis is an ideal volume for researchers and molecular biologists invested in ever-growing field of prenatal medicine.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive book describes invasive and noninvasive techniques for diagnosing various chromosomal and genetic disorders prenatally. … the book was written for molecular biologists and those involved in research in the area of prenatal medicine. … has a consistent style to convey the information, making each chapter readable and relatable to the previous chapters. … as a compilation of techniques and a description of the situations in prenatal medicine in which each technique might be useful, this is an excellent and detailed resource." (Gilad A. Gross, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)
