We know from our clinical experience in the practice of medicine that in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, the individual and his background of hereadity are just as important, if not more so, as the disease itself” (Paul White). Technological developments in cytogenetics resulted in establishing the number of chromosomes in human beings as 46 in 1956, though the chromosome complement of various organisms was known in the previous century itself. Diagnostic cytogenetics had its birth in 1959 and showed the association of chromosomal defects with various diseases and human cytogenetics is now a rapidly progressing field of interest, in biomedicine.
