Cytogenetics

Cytogenetics is a branch of genetics that is concerned with how the chromosomes relate to cell behaviour, particularly to their behaviour during mitosis and meiosis. Techniques used include karyotyping, analysis of G-banded chromosomes, other cytogenetic banding techniques, as well as molecular cytogenetic such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH).Their conduct in creature (lizard) cells was depicted by Walther Flemingdization (CGH). Chromosomes were first seen in plant cells by Karl Wil, the pioneer of mitosis, in 1882. The name was begat by another German anatomist, von Waldeyer in 1888.
