About this work
Human chromosomes highlighted by fluorescent probes which bind to specific sequenes of DNA. This FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridisation) study shows a female not deleted for a cosmid (red) from within the Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) gene. See B0000324C for FISH study of female with deletion. In a carrier female, this signal would be missing from one of the X chromosomes. Image by Dr John Crolla. Biomedical Image Awards 1997.
