SKY/M-FISH and CGH Database

The goal of the SKY/M-FISH and CGH database is to provide a public
platform for investigators to share and compare their molecular
cytogenetic data. The database is open to everyone and all users can view
an individual investigator's public data or compare public cases from
different investigators. Those wishing to contribute their own data must
register and can choose to keep their data private for a period not to
exceed two years.

See publication about this database and the Cancer Chromosomes database.


Spectral Karyotyping (SKY), Multiplex Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (M-FISH) and
Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) 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 utilizes the hybridization of differentially labeled tumor and reference
DNA to generate a map of DNA copy number changes in tumor genomes.
