Database Description

The NCI and NCBI SKY/M-FISH and CGH Database is a repository of publicly submitted data from Spectral Karyotyping (SKY), Multiplex Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (M-FISH), and Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH), which are complementary fluorescent molecular cytogenetic techniques. SKY/M-FISH permits the simultaneous visualization of each human or mouse chromosome in a different color, facilitating the identification of chromosomal aberrations; CGH can be used to generate a map of DNA copy number changes in tumor genomes. Collaborative project with the National Cancer Institute.
