Piribo, [http://www.piribo.com the online destination for business intelligence for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, has now added a new report entitled “Cytogenetics Technologies, markets and companies.”
This report deals with cytogenetics in a broader sense rather than the classical use mainly to describe the chromosome structure and identify abnormalities related to disease. In the age of molecular biology, it is also referred to as molecular cytogenetics. Historical landmarks in the evolution of cytogenetics are reviewed since the first images of chromosomes were made in 1879. The scope of cytogenetics includes several technologies besides fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), and multicolor FISH. Molecular cytogenetics includes application of nanobiotechnology, microarrays, real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), in vivo imaging, and single molecule detection. Bioinformatics is described briefly as it plays an important role in analyzing data from many of these technologies.
The report includes;
Summary profiles of 37 companies relevant to cytogenetics along with their collaborations.
Companies developing innovative technologies as well as those supplying equipment/services/reagents.
The report text is supplemented with 23 Tables and 7 figures. -Selected 100 references are included in the bibliography.
Table of contents in brief:
