Access Information / ABOUT THE ONLINE DATABASE

NOW AVAILABLE

The database of CHROMOSOMAL VARIATION IN MAN: A Catalog of Chromosomal Variants and Anomalies consists of a systematic collection of important citations from the world's literature reporting on all common and rare chromosomal alterations, phenotypes and abnormalities in humans. The database is organized by variations and anomalies, numerical anomalies, and chromosomal breakage syndromes.

The database contains 19,341 entries updated continuously since 1974. Among its features are:

  • Each entry includes a citation, a description of the karyotypic abnormalities, data on the phenotypes of the patient(s), and availability of cell lines
  • Almost all records are coded for different kinds of abnormalities which can then be searched individually for the 24 different human chromosomes 1 - 22, X and Y
  • Includes citations on all of the aneuploidies and chromosomal breakage syndromes
  • The database can be viewed in various formats including date of entry, chromosome breakpoint, or chromosome
  • All citations can be searched through entries in this database
Developed by Digamber S. Borgaonkar utilizing his own unique method of arrangement of data, each citation in the database must be unique, a first citation, or a recent citation. The data is arranged by chromosome, arm, region, band, and sub-band. Similarly all the data of aneuploidies are followed by chromosome numbers. In each point of entry, all citations are then arranged alphabetically. Access to this database on-line will make the work of any researcher in cytogenetics easier and faster.

This database is intended for use primarily by cytogeneticists, genetics researchers, other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, and by advanced students in science and medicine. Individuals without an expertise in these areas are strongly urged to seek the assistance of an expert in the interpretation of data found in this database. For detailed information on how this database was compiled, please see the Preface from Chromosomal Variation in Man: A Catalog of Chromosomal Variants and Anomalies, Eighth Edition.

It is important to note that in compiling the database all reports have not been cited. It has been the goal to provide key references on all kinds of chromosomal variants and anomalies, and through these, users should be able to locate the literature on any given condition or topic. Of the numerous reports on relatively common conditions only a few reports have been catalogued on the basis of priority, uniqueness, or general coverage. Reports on chromosome changes in tumors, cancers and leukemic cell lines have been almost entirely excluded. Data on experimentally reproduced chromosomal break points have also been excluded.

When you purchase the Eighth Edition of CHROMOSOMAL VARIATION IN MAN: A Catalog of Chromosomal Variants and Anomalies, you will receive 12 months of unlimited access to CHROMOSOMAL VARIATION IN MAN On-Line. Updated on a regular basis, this database features a user-friendly interface and a search engine compatible with any Internet browser. All of the information that is contained in the Eighth Edition of CHROMOSOMAL VARIATION IN MAN: A Catalog of Chromosomal Variants and Anomalies, nearly 19,000 entries, is available on-line.
