I had posted these questions before but no one helped me so ill repeat the questions: Please Help Me :)
1. would karyotypes from the same family look similar? Explain.
2. Provide one reason as to why it would be useful to compare karyotypes of family
I'm sorry, but Jiskha doesn't have any regular biology tutors. These sites may help you, though.
1.Karyotypes are just the stained chromosomes from the nucleus of a cell. Only large abnormalities are picked up, such as differences in chromosome number. They are not supposed to be like DNA which would be similar to the parents.
2. -calculate the chance of affected people of the people
-karyotyping of that family will help u diagonse the probability of the diseased members
Hope that helps ps: check the sites Ms.Sue has gave you :)
