Question

Suppose, you want to detect the CAG repeat expansion within a particular gene (30 repeats in normal changes to 250 repeats in disease) in a certain disease. How will you diagnose this disease condition?

Can you identify Y chromosome microdeletion (which involves the deletion of AZF locus) using conventional karyotyping? If not, then why?

How will you diagnose a chromosomal translocation event? (Discuss any one of the processes)
