Each chromosome arm includes at least 1 (18p and Yp) and up to 6 (2q, 4q, and 5q) hybridization sites, each assigned to a specific chromosome band. Subtelomeric and paracentromeric sequences are assigned a pure color (aqua, yellow, and red for pter, centromere, and qter, respectively), and interstitial bands are assigned either a pure (far red or green) or a hybrid (fusion) color.
