Cytogenomics or cytogenetics is also called Chromosome Analysis is the science that relates to the study of chromosomes. Each person has 23 pairs of chromosomes and one pair of sex chromosomes. Each chromosome pair is assigned with a special number that is based on their staining pattern and size. There are many disorders that can be diagnosed by examining a person’s whole chromosomes. Abnormalities in chromosome structure are also observed with Cytogenic staining techniques and translocation disorders like chronic myeloid Leukaemia (CML) AND Burkitt’s Lymphoma can also be detected.
