Structural Differences Along the Chromosomes (Chromosome Banding)
In the foregoing chapter different methods of bringing out structural differences along the chromosomes, the so called “bands”, were described as well as their practical implications for identifying all the chromosomes. All these chromosome bands have been demonstrated in many different species. Practically every sort of mitotic chromosome, treated in an appropriate manner, displays some type of banding. Structural differences along the chromosomes can therefore be regarded as a general principle.
