Abstract

A trypsin-Giemsa banding technique was carried out in order to identify 30 pairs of cattle chromosomes. All of the 30 pairs displayed characteristic banding patterns. The autosomes were classified into 4 groups, each member of which could be identified on the basis of their banding patterns. Details of the G-banding patterns of each chromosome were described and illustrated both in a karyotypical photograph and a schema. This technique may be valuable in cytogenetical diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities in cattle.
