Hello,
      Does anyone have any references at all to cytogenetic location nomenclature
for the following species (or any others )?  Which ones are identical to that
for Human etc.?

human          (ISCN 1985, An International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature,
                 (Harnden, D.G. and Klinger, H.P.,eds), Karger)
               (ISCN 1991, Guidelines for Cancer Cytogenetics: Supplement to 
                 An International System for Human Cytogenetic Nomenclature,
                  ( Mitelman, F.,ed) Karger)

chicken

fugu

We would like to set up a searching mechanism for a comparative mapping database 
of some of  these species.  We have looked around various WWW net sites, FAQs and a quick literature search of Entrez and BIDS, but have not found the required information yet. Obviously  the replies will be summarised and the summary posted 
to the net.


Best Regards,
