Idiogram- A drawing or photograph of the chromosomes of a particular cell.
- this drawing does not include the circular mitochondrial DNA
- cells normally have two copies of each chromosome (except the mature germ cells)
- normal chromosomes have one long (q) arm and one short (p) arm

|Idiogram Chromosome Banding - The term refers to the light and dark pattern, seen after staining with a dye, of individual chromosomes identified in metaphase. It is only in meiosis and mitosis during metaphase that chromosomes can be easily identified, during the normal cell life (interphase) the chromosomes are unravelled and distributed within the nucleus in chromosome territories. A band is that part of a chromosome which is clearly distinguishable from nearby regions by appearing darker or brighter with one or more banding techniques.|
