Distinguish between karyotyping and pedigree analysis.

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To distinguish: Karyotyping and pedigree analysis.

Concept introduction: Normally, each cell in humans has 46 chromosomes (23 pairs). Twenty-two pairs of chromosomes are autosomes, and one pair is sex chromosomes (X and Y). Any variations in chromosomal arrangements leading to defects can be identified by karyotyping, pedigree analysis, and DNA sequencing.

Explanation of Solution

Table 1 shows the differences between karyotyping and pedigree analysis.

Table 1

KaryotypingPedigree analysis
A karyotype is the visual picture of numbers and morphologies of chromosomes present in a cell.Pedigree represents the genetic family history to determine the risk or presence of disease in the next generation.
It consists of analyses based on the actual morphology of chromosomes...
