Advantages of traditional cytogenetics over PCR

Postby klou » Mon May 03, 2010 1:51 pm

What would you define as traditional cytogenetic methods? Are they simply banding techniques, or is there more to it?
I can think of plenty of advantages of PCR over this is cytogenetic studies but what are the advantages of ttraditional methods over PCR?

Thanks

What about FISH?

Well, by PCR you can determine presence/absence. You can even determine number of copies, but you can't determine position in your genome ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
