Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH)
Schematic representation of the CGH technique. Courtesy of Maria Jesus Hernandez and Juan Luis Garcia. Hospital Universitario de Salamanca. CGH and FISH is a method for analyzing genomic DNA for unbalanced genetic alterations. Genomic DNA from the test sample (e.g., tumor cells) is labeled (e.g., orange/red) and mixed with normal genomic DNA labeled another color (e.g., green) and the mixture is hybridized (FISH) to a normal human metaphase spread or other reference standard. Regions of imbalance (increased or decreased copy number) in the tumor are located or mapped relative to the normal metaphase chromosomes as increases or decreases in the green to orange/red fluorescence ratio.
