The aim of 'Atlas of Genetics and Cytogenetics in Oncology and Haematology' (http://www.infobiogen.fr/services/chromcancer) is to present summarized information on chromosome abnormalities in cancer, with extensions to genes involved in cancer and to cancer-prone diseases. Information is to be updated. This database is made for and by cytogeneticists, molecular biologists, clinicians in oncology and in haematology, and pathologists.

Cytogenetic biomarkers for human cancer.
Many of the best-known chromosome rearrangement and variant rearrangements in hematologic disease and solid tumors are described, the genes and underlying molecular mechanisms known to be involved in development and progression of disease are indicated, and the newer molecular cytogenetic technologies and how they are currently being used in cancer diagnostics are described.
General resources in Genetics and/or Oncology
This "Deep Insight" is a detailed subchapter of a general review article and summary on Internet databases for cytogeneticists: Internet databases and resources for cytGenetics and cytogenomics.
Cytogenetic Resources and Information.
Being a complex multistep process, cancer cytogenetics are broadened to "cytogenomics," with complementary resources on: general databases (nucleic acid and protein sequences databases; cartography browsers: GenBank, RefSeq, UCSC, Ensembl, UniProtKB, and Entrez Gene), cancer genomic portals associated with recent international integrated programs, and other fusion genes databases.

Isolated Bone Marrow Involvement in Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma: A Report of Three Cases with Review of Morphological, Immunophenotypic and Cytogenetic Findings
Three cases ofDLBL presenting with isolated marrow disease are described, highlighting the biological and cytogenetic heterogenity of DLBL and emphasize the need for complementary investigations in the characterization of this entity.

Cytogenetics of Primary Skin Tumors
This chapter describes the recurrent aberrations associated with skin tumors, such as benign melanocytic nevi, melanoma, basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinoma, actinic (solar) keratosis, Bowen’s disease, keratoacanthoma, Merkel cell carcinom, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and cutaneous lymphomas, as detected by cytogenetic methodologies.

Cancer cytogenetics does not only provide key information to improve the care of patients with malignancies, but also acts as a guide to identify the genes responsible for the development of these neoplastic states and has led to the emergence of molecularly targeted therapies in the fi eld of personalized medicine.
Atlas of Genetics and Cytogenetics in Oncology and Haematology: une base de données sur le Net en accès gratuit
Une information précise, concise, fiable and actualisée sur la génétique des cancers devient une nécessité, pour le soin comme pour the recherche, de plus en plus importante.

GDB: the Human Genome Database
The Genome Database is in the process of adding representations of gene function and expression, and improving the representation of human polymorphism and mutation, to the scope of the GDB schema.
