Prior to cell division, during the metaphase step of mitosis, the chromosomes condense into a more compact form that can be observed under a microscope following chromosomal staining. Chromosomes are visualized under a light microscope as consisting of a continuous series of light and dark bands when stained with different dyes. The pattern of light and dark bands results because of different amounts of A and T versus G and C bases in regions of the chromosomes. A common method for staining chromosomes to obtain a banding pattern is the use of a Giemsa dye mixture that results in so-called ‘G-bands’ via the ‘G-staining’ method.
Now, more than 20 years later, computing speeds of 3000 MHz (3 GHz) are common. Just as computer processing speeds and capabilities have increased rapidly, the ability of laboratories to perform DNA typing methods has improved along a similar timeline due to rapid progress in the areas of biology, technology, and application of genetic theories. In addition, the power of discrimination for DNA tests steadily increased in the late 1990s and into the new century (see Chapter 3). 1). In 1985, the year that Alec Jeffreys first published his work with multi-locus RFLP probes, Microsoft shipped its first version of Windows software to serve as a computer operating system.
