  What is Aneuploidy?/dysploidy
From: agrsuw at ku.ac.th (agrsuw at ku.ac.th) on 2008.01.11 at 01:03:58(16943)
Dear Ted,

Dysploidy is something differ from aneuploidy. In aneuploidy, the chromosome
change resulted from a missing or adding of a resemble (homologous) chromosome
to the existing chromosome. In this case, genetic information on the given
chromosome may be lost or double.
While in dysploidy, the chromosome change resulted from structural change of the
old chromosome; such as splitting (centric fission) or combine (centric
fussion). The whole genetic information will still be the same. This
dysploidy is then more stable within a species.
