                  THE CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITY DATABASE

The Chromosome Abnormality Database (CAD) is a centralised repository of 
records of human chromosome abnormalities, and is available for researchers 
to search free of charge.

Established in early 1991, the CAD now contains nearly forty thousand records 
of acquired and constitutional chromosome abnormalities contributed by over 
forty cytogenetics laboratories throughout the United Kingdom. Although there 
is a considerable bias towards recent cases, the data stretch back over twenty 
years and include information on the availability of cell lines and other 
stored material.

Searches of the database may be performed free of charge by contacting the 
database manager, Dr Mercer at the address below, or directly by the researcher
through the computing facilities maintained by the UK Human Genome Mapping 
Program.
