Comparative genomic hybridization¬†is a molecular¬†cytogenetic¬†technique for detecting¬†copy number changes¬†without the necessity for culturing cells. The primary goal of this technique is to compare two genomic DNA samples within less time and with less effort.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of¬†citations¬†to recent articles published in¬†science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a¬†proxy¬†for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by¬†Eugene Garfield, the founder of the¬†Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
