Technology and methods

Section information

This section welcomes articles from any discipline of molecular cytogenetics not covered by the other journal sections and deals with the implementation of new probe sets, the description of new types of chromosomal abnormalities ( including non clonal chromosome aberrations), or ideas around the vital field of molecular cytogenetic research.  Descriptions of methods or in vitro systems used to study karyotype evolution or quantify chromosome instability are welcome.
