Despite the chicken being one of the most genetically mapped of all animals, its karyotype remains poorly defined. This is primarily due to microchromosomes that belie assignment by conventional methods. To address this problem, we have developed chromosome-specific paints using flow cytometry and microdissection. For the microchromosomes it was necessary to amplify and label DNA from single microdissected chromosomes.
