I will be editing this extensively in the next couple days probably, this is what i doo all day so hopefully it won't suck. rhyax 05:58, 31 Aug 2004 (UTC)

My compliments for your present version. There must be more clinical indications than the ones mentioned... JFW | T@lk 23:25, 5 Sep 2004 (UTC)
do you think a list of the things cytogenetics can identify would be appropriate? I can definitely get a list of them, but it's quite a lot of things. maybe i should add a few more common ones? i don't know much about clinical presentations or things like that though if that's what you mean. rhyax 02:59, 6 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Beautiful article. In the near future the quality of the article could be enhanced by introducing information about organisms another than human beings, such as C. elengans or Arabidopsis thaliana. [[User:Pabloalbv] 01:21, 1 Sep 2006 (UTC)

I look forward to that, unfortunately my expertise is only in human cytogenetics :) - cohesion 07:12, 2 November 2006 (UTC) (aka rhyax)

The analytical standards and policies appear to mainly apply to a US model. Other standards and procedures apply in other countries. Agoutirex 21:46, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Wider perspective needed[edit]

The article depends too much on medical examples, and loses sight of the range of variation in the eukaryote kingdom. There is also an unhealthy emphasis on laboratory cytological techniques at the expense of a proper overview of the scientific issues which the techniques help to answer. This prevents a consideration of evolutionary questions, which is one of the main objectives of a biological approach. There are also some errors, which need correction.

Need a more visually obvious abnormality image than t(9;11)[edit]

The current image intended to represent a human cytogenetic abnormality, t(9;11), won't be obvious to the non-professional (too frequently it's not obvious to some professionals!). I'd suggest replacing it with an image of a more obvious translocation (or deletion) involving larger chromosome segments [e.g., the common del(5)(q22q35) in myelodysplatic syndrome]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dosware (talkcontribs) 23:18, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

External link domain name expired[edit]

The domain name of the first external link ( has expired and redirects to I'm not familiar with the action needing to be done with such an occurrence, so I'll leave this to someone else.

Adding source[edit]

I am a UW-Eau Claire student working on an English class project to contribute to a Wikipedia article. The subsection titled Beginnings of molecular cytogenetics needs help improving this subsection by adding citations to reliable sources. I found a book, which I would like to add to this subsection, to cite as a reliable source that way the information, in this subsection, won't get challenged or removed. The book I would like to add is titled Cytogenetics written by P.K. Gupta and published by Rastogi Publications in 2007. Before adding this citation to the subsection I would like feedback from other users. ZsoftballZ20 (talk) 03:59, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Internal Linking (Wikify)[edit]

I am a UW-Eau Claire student working on Wikipedia articles for an assignment. I would like any feedback on internal linking, I'm pretty sure it's called wikify, the word [amniocyte]s in the subsection Advent of banding techniques (on this page) to the Wikipedia article Amniocyte.
