A brief overview is presented in advances in cytogenetic methodology and the development of aneuploid stocks since the 1920s. The methodologies range from first reports of chromosome numbers of major organisms, the development of chromosome karyotypes, then aneuploid stocks in major crop plants. Molecular inputs include chromosome banding techniques, molecular marker maps, and in situ hybridization methodologies. All of the new techniques have greatly increased the degree of resolution obtained from cytogenetic studies.
