Regarding pairing of chromosome in karyogram.

Postby ebmar » Fri Dec 06, 2013 11:09 pm

Hi.

I've tried to match the homologous pairs, but i've stumbled upon a problem. I know it's a trisomy, but the number 15 doesn't match any of the other chromosomes.

Can you please help?

Well then, why do you think it's trisomy if you have 46 chromosomes?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

There are 47 chromosomes in the picture.

I see now, he has two trisomies and one monosomy...

Theoreticaly why not? If there is trisomy, there must be monosomy, right?
