G banding

(redirected from G-banding)

G banding

A method of identifying the different members of a haploid set of metaphase chromosomes by means of staining that reveals their individual pattern of stripes.

G banding

a method of treating chromosomes with Giemsa stain to show areas of the chromosomes with light and heavy staining. Such patterns are different for each chromosome type and thus are most useful when arranging chromosomes in KARYOTYPE analysis.

G banding

the technique of demonstrating g bands.
