Title Computerised method for detection of symmetrical chromosomal exchanges in persons exposed to radiation
Original title Detekce symetrických výměn v chromozómovém obrazu osob s radiační zátěží s použitím počitače [in Czech]
Bibliographic information Feb. 1980, Vol.32, No.2, p.58-63. Illus. 15 ref.
Abstract The analytical method, which was applied to 8 radiation-exposed subjects, is described. Continued observation of the persistence or evolution of reciprocal translocations of cytogenetic importance produced in somatic cells following exposure to radiation, opens up a promising approach to the detection of biological hazards.
