Welcome to the website for Borgaonkar's Chromosomal Variation in Man Online Database!
T his database provides an unparalleled means of reviewing the world literature on all common and rare chromosomal alterations and abnormalities. Organized for easy access, coverage is divided into three main subject areas: variations and anomalies, numerical anomalies, and chromosomal breakage syndromes. The database documents information on the availability of mutant cell lines and presents chromosome alterations with a list that cross-references band numbers.
This is an indispensable resource for human and medical geneticists, cytogeneticists, cytogenetic laboratory technicians, and others interested in human chromosome abnormalities.
Special Note to Authors: Dr. Borgaonkar welcomes any author of the papers included in this database to contribute additional information on cases published such as further offspring in families with translocations, inversions, and longevity of aneuploid individuals. This type of information may be useful in counseling other families and individuals with similar anomalies. Should you wish to contribute to the database, please contact Dr. Borgaonkar at email@example.com.
