Paris Conference (1971, 1975) Giemsa banding pattern


    Giemsa staining of denatured chromosomes reveals characteristic banding patterns that can be used to identify individual chromosomes. Cross-hatched areas on Chromosomes 1, 9, 16, and Y are heterochromatic regions that are genetically inactive. Most chromosomes also show centromeric heterochromatin.
