Plan of program: Each module the trainee will gain the necessary skills to perform cell culture process, slide making and microscopically analyze peripheral blood samples, bone marrow samples, perform chromosome analysis, and utilize FISH (Fluorescence in-situ hybridization) to identify cytogenetic abnormalities. Digital Imaging, interpretation and reporting of results based on ISCN 2020 for each of the distinct sample types represented. Theory underpinning each module is taught over with practical classes. The diagnostic techniques and diagnostic interpretations learned at division of Human Genetics, will empower the students pursue cytogenetics at different levels in diagnostic labs and medical colleges across country.

Clinical Genetics: Students will get exposed to Genetic Clinic at the time of patient interviewing and sample collection/ receiving from St. John’s hospital.

Techniques Learned: Sample culture setting for peripheral blood, bone marrow samples, sample harvesting, slide preparation, GTG banding , Principles of FISH methodology for leukemia panels, micro deletion syndrome, X/Y enueploidy FISH, SRY gene deletion. Choosing specific probes, probe hybridization, FISH analysis and signal interpretation. Reporting patterns and clinical correlation.
