ABSTRACT
The biomedical image analysis system at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory is being developed specifically to aid in the cytophotometric analysis of human chromosomes. Chromosomes carry genetic information in the form of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Our goal is to measure the amount of DNA in each of the 46 chromosomes in normal human cells, and to use such measurements to detect any departures from normal that may be associated with disease or aging, or with exposure to radiation, drugs, pollutants, or other noxious agents.
