Human chromosome ideograms that depict 850 bands, numbered in
agreement with ISCN (1981) nomenclature but based on actual
measurements of band sizes and differentiated by five shades of
staining intensity, have been digitized using ADOBE graphics
software.  These ideograms  provide for more accurate estimates of
distances within chromosome arms, DNA content of chromosome bands
and correlation between cytohgenetic, molecular and genetic linkage
maps than the standard ISCN ideograms.
