A karyotype provides meaningful information regarding the overall chromosome makeup of the cell. Translocations, deletions, inversions are some chromosome structural abnormalities that can be analysed along with chromosome numerical abnormalities.
A try-it-yourself activity will teach you how chromosomes should be arranged in order to further study these abnormalities.
Click and drag each chromosome on the right onto the screen to complete the karyotype.
Clicking on “Hints On” will enable you to tell if you’ve made the correct choice.
