Copy number variation[edit]

It is said on the page about CNV that it is a subtype of chromosomal abnormality. If so, maybe it should be mentioned here? --CopperKettle (talk) 18:25, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

New abnormalities due to transgenic technology[edit]

It has been observed in Arabidopsis thaliana a work by Elena Alvarez-Buylla, that the insertion of transgenes in different places of genome results in very different monstrous plants, far from what is desired from the other spices gene.

I think that this, artificial phenomenon should be included in this article, but I am not qualified to write about it, I just know the phenomenon and is important to include it here.

On other hand, this kind of phenomenon, a similar one, is also known to happen as an evolution mechanism. Does anyone know the detail, does it only came by symbiosis in the way described by Lynn Margulis?

Please some biologist help in writing this topics. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.140.204.187 (talk) 15:23, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Proposed addition of new tables[edit]

I drafted some tables that might be nice for the article. Requesting criticism and fact-checking.

Thanks! -Craig Pemberton 05:17, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

I am new in this but i like this table, maybe you could add more details to it, like chance of accuring , or in what way chromosome is modified. (if that makes sense.) like this: [chromosome number][syndrom name][modification_type][chance] ...— Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.172.161.35 (talk) 15:06, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Adding to the main page, maybe it will get more attention there. Craig Pemberton 05:22, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
