About this work


Human chromosome highlighted by fluorescent probes that bind to specific sequences of DNA. In this FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridisation) study a probe (red) from the Prader Willi and Angelman's syndromes critical region (PSASCR) and a chromosome 15 centromere specific probe (green) show that the 15q.11>q13 duplication does not include the PWASCR.
