Descriptor English: Chromosome Banding
Descriptor Spanish: Bandeo Cromosómico
Descriptor bandeo cromosómico
Scope note: Coloración de las bandas, o segmentos cromosómicos, que permite la identificación precisa de cromosomas individuales o partes de cromosomas. Entre las aplicaciones están la determinación de reordenamientos cromosómicos en síndromes de malformación y cáncer, la química de los segmentos cromosómicos, cambios cromosómicos durante la evolución y, junto con los estudios de hibridación celular, el mapeo cromosómico.

Scope note: Staining of bands, or chromosome segments, allowing the precise identification of individual chromosomes or parts of chromosomes. Applications include the determination of chromosome rearrangements in malformation syndromes and cancer, the chemistry of chromosome segments, chromosome changes during evolution, and, in conjunction with cell hybridization studies, chromosome mapping.
