Zytogenetische Grundlagen der molekularen Medizin

  • Karl Sperling
  • Heidemarie Neitzel


Die molekulare Medizin ist eine analytische Wissenschaft mit dem Ziel, einen medizinischen Sachverhalt bis hin zu seinen molekularen Ursachen aufzuklären. Die Zytogenetik dagegen stellt die Verbindung zytologischer, speziell chromosomaler Beobachtungen mit genetischen Sachverhalten dar und wird daher als eine deskriptive Disziplin angesehen.
