KARYOTYPING ACTIVITY Name: ___________________________ For the following activity refer to the textbook and go to the following website: http://bluehawk.monmouth.edu/~bio/karyotypes.htm. 1. Karotyping is usually done after a procedure like amniocentesis. What is an anmiocentesis (page 171)? 2. What is the procedure for karyotyping (page 158-159)? 3. Enter the website above, view the completed karyotypes so that you see what they look like and then complete the unfinished male karyotype. In other words drag the chromosomes around trying to find pairs that look alike based on their overall size and banding pattern. Then, align them so that chromosomes number 1 is the largest pair, etc... and chromosome number 22 is the smallest pair. You should have 2 leftover unpaired chromosomes, one large and one quite small. When you are done print out your completed work (see the directions at the bottom of the main page first) or trace the chromosomes with an accurate outline and banding pattern. 4. How can karyotyping be used to determine changes in chromosome number (page 168-169)? 5. How can karyotyping be used to determine changes in chromosome structure like chromosome deletions, inversions, translocation, and dulications (170)?
