Does anyone here know anything about supernumerary (B) chromosomes and the
methods currently being used to characterise them?  I am also considering
the evolution of these chromosomes and would appreciate any suggestions on
how this could be investigated.  I am attempting to write a dissertation on
the subject and there appears to be a serious lack of published information
on the subject.

Thank you.


Try these papers in your science library.  Meanwhile I'll see if I can get
these on line.  Also try Pubmed search at Entrez using Key words B satellite
Chromosomes and then B Supernumerary Chromosomes.  In Entrez you can click on
related articles and then click on display. The Stark paper looks interesting.
