Chromosome Analysis: Banding Patterns and Structural Aberrations

Logo for Chromosome Analysis: Banding Patterns and Structural Aberrations
"This activity allows students to compare banding patterns of ideograms from four primates (human, gorilla, chimpanzee, and orangutan) to determine which types of chromosomal aberrations (deletions, translocations, etc.) may have taken place to give rise to the differences seen between species."

A nice assignment that has the students looking at real data from a Science paper to learn about both chromosome abnormalities and evolution of the primates. I have also done it where I just give them the figures without the instructions and see what they can figure out.
