high-resolution chromosome studies


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Analysis of the banding pattern of human chromosomes at pro-metaphase, when they are longer than at metaphase. Such analyses reveal 700–1200 bands and allow a more detailed localization of adjacent genes than is possible for metaphase chromosomes, where 300–600 bands are typically observed. See human chromosome band designations.
