What is M banding?- Requirement, Process, Protocol and Applications

What is M banding?- Requirement, Process, Protocol and Applications

M-Bands or M Banding is a high-resolution chromosome banding technique that finds cryptic chromosomal rearrangements such as inversion, translocation, deletion or duplication at the chromosome level.  Banding techniques have a significant role in cytogenetics especially in karyotyping. The whole cytogenetic studies are conducted around chromosomes and to encounter chromosomal anomalies. Many techniques and improvements over …
