To see previous versions of these guidlelines last revised in Novemberclick here. Mouse chromosomes are numbered and identified according to the system given by Nesbitt and FranckeSawyer et al. The word Chromosome should start with a capital letter when referring to a specific chromosome and may be abbreviated to Chr after the first use, e.
Most people have either two X chromosomes or one X and one Y chromosome in their cells. The Harmony test looks for SCAs such as:. People with SCAs can have birth defects, infertility and learning differences.
About Translations. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, 22 autosomes and a pair of sex chromosomes. This section of notes introduces the X chromosome and its role in development.

Self-replicating gene drives that modify sex ratios or infer a fitness cost could be used to control populations of invasive alien species. The targeted deletion of Y sex chromosomes using CRISPR technology offers a new approach for sex bias that could be incorporated within gene-drive designs. Next, using stochastic, individual-based models of a pest mouse population, we show that a Y-shredding drive that progressively depletes the pool of XY males could effect population eradication through mate limitation. If the homing mechanism is triggered in the germline Bruck, ; Burt,recessive traits that negatively impact the fitness of homozygous individuals should still spread though populations, and eventually lead to population suppression or eradication Deredec et al.
Karyotyping is the process by which cytogeneticists take photographs of chromosomes in order to determine the chromosome complement of an individual, including the number of chromosomes and any abnormalies. The term is also used for the complete set of chromosomes in a species or in an individual organism    and for a test that detects this complement or measures the number. Karyotypes describe the chromosome count of an organism and what these chromosomes look like under a light microscope.
