Abstract

This unit opens with an overview of microdeletions and methods for their detection. It goes on to describe a vast array of autosomal microdeletion syndromes, X-linked microdeletion syndromes, and microduplication syndromes. The final portion of the unit offers guidance for detecting such syndromes with Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH).
