The latest technology, described as multiplex FISH (M-FISH) or spectral karyotyping (SKY), utilizes pools of whole human chromosome paint probes to provide a multicolor human karyotype in which each pair of homologous chromosomes can be identified on the basis of its unique color when studied using computer-based image analysis (Fig.

105). Developments in molecular genetics increasingly allow identification of the mutational basis of the specific features that occur in a person with a particular inherited disease, or what is known as the phenotype. This has resulted in attempts to correlate the presence of a particular mutation, which is often called the genotype, with the specific features seen in a person with an inherited disorder, this being referred to as geno�ype­ phenotype correlation. This can be important in the management of a patient.
