Fish Karyome, a relational
database of cytogenetic information on fish and other aquatic organisms
provides information on chromosome number, morphology, sex chromosomes,
karyotype formula and cytogenetic markers etc.
The database also provides
phenotypic information viz.
scientific name, taxonomic details, importance and IUCN conservation status.
Images of organisms, chromosomes and karyotypes enhance the scope
and utility of the database.
Fish Karyome has
applications in species characterization, sex determination, chromosomal
mapping, karyo-evolution and systematics.
