1.2 2 The chromosomes that constitute the human genome

Laboratory techniques are available to aid in the preparation and staining of the chromosomes from a single cell, so that they are readily distinguished and can be photographed under the microscope. During mitosis, the chromosomes become visible (because they have condensed) and it is during mitosis that chromosome number, size and shape can be most easily studied. Every species has a particular number of chromosomes, each with a characteristic size and shape. For example, chimpanzee c

Their meaning is also affected by the perspective from which they are viewed, for example, the service user's experience of social work and law will not always match the expectations of the professional, or the perceptions of the general p

This was based on interviews conducted with 135 heads of pre-school settings and 12 local authority co-ordinators in six local authorities. At a time of rapid policy development and because of the diversity in pre-school provision, the EPPE study recorded how recent changes in local authority under-fives provision might b

2.4.3 Exchange

Being able to link computers into networks has enormously boosted their capabilities. Data can now be sent between any two computers, maybe thousands of miles apart, at the speed of light. For example, I can share the digital photo stored on my computer with people all over the world almost instantaneously, simply by sending the image to them as an email attachment. Or I can go further and post the image to a website on the internet, where it will be publicly available for any suitably equipp
