Chromosome Spread (Pre-Fixed Slides) (1480)


During mitosis, each of our chromosomes is duplicated. The chromosomes are then separated during mitosis, moving to opposite ends of the cell before cell division. In this experiment, cells have been arrested during metaphase and fixed to slides, allowing students to stain and observe the condensed chromosomes. Students will develop an understanding of karyotyping and the association of chromosomal abnormalities with diseases.
