FISH

A laboratory technique used to look at genes or chromosomes in cells and tissues. Pieces of
DNA that contain a fluorescent dye are made in the laboratory and added to cells or tissues
on a glass slide. When these pieces of DNA bind to specific genes or areas of chromosomes
on the slide, they light up when viewed under a microscope with a special light. Also called
fluorescence in situ hybridization.
