Primate Cytogenetics

QLRI-CT-2002-01325 (European Commission contract)

The karyotype diagrams reported for each species summarize the chromosomal organization in respect to humans

Note: DAPI images were obtained after FISH experiments. Because of the FISH procedure the heterochromatic blocks appear, most of the time, bright.
