I and others here at the University of Washington have worked on an ISCN
parser to allow automated drawings of idiographic karyotypes - useful for
clinical reports, genetic counseling and training. Without funding
lubrication the project moves rather slowly ;(
I know that Jan Friedman up in Vancouver, B.C. built a parser used for
creating a cytogenetic case registry:
Friedman-J-M. Smith-J-P. Lerner-B-N. Helgeson-J-S. Howard-Peebles-P-N.
Mize-C-E. Mize-S-G. Singleton-W-L. Smith-M-E.

Hope this is useful,
