Therefore, for many, studies that actually visualized chromosomes were a more exciting route to follow. Cytogenetics and the joy of seeing chromosomes The existence of chromosomes had been known since the mid-19th century. However, an understanding of their roles only began in the 1950s, as technology for visualizing them became developed. Most of the time chromosomes are extremely elongated structures contained in the cell nucleus invisible under a light microscope. However, when cells divide the chromosomes become shorter and more compact, aligning themselves in pairs.

Hence if one trait is a genetic marker of known location on a chromosome and the other is a disease it is possible to infer that the gene conferring susceptibility to the disease maps close to the marker. The main problem about applying this approach to identify the genes involved in any disease, even ones that show simple Mendelian inheritance within families, is that until the mid-1980s the genetic markers that were available to researchers were few in number. They included ABO and various other blood groups, some enzymes that could be measured in red cells, various polymorphic plasma proteins and polymorphisms within the HLA system, the components of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) that determines the success or rejection of tissue transplants.
