It is suggested that the standard bovine karyotype adopted at the R e a d i n g Conference in 1976 (Ford et al. 1980) and reconfirmed in France in 1989 (DiBerardino et al., in press) remain as the accepted karyotype. Nomenclature used to describe cytogenetic aberrations has generally followed the pattern adopted for human chromosomes and it is suggested that this be continued. A high resolution karyotype standard could be considered. Further research on normal variants such as fragile sites is needed.
