Paper Abstract

The potentials and first results of a combined Raman microspectroscopic and atomic force microscopic study of the banding pattern of polytene chromosomes are described. The results of Raman experiments indicate that differences in DNA content between bands and interbands are not as large as previously suggested in the literature. By means of atomic force microscopy the ultrastructure of chromosome bands and interbands can be analyzed.
