The chromosome sizes at UCSC don't seem to contain chr29:


It has a chr28 and a chr30. Am I missing something or is there some piece of history that led to the omission of this chromosome?


1 Answer 1


The current ensembl entry doesn't have a 29 either. The archived ensembl assembly lacks 29 30, and 31 and 33 and LGE64.

The chromosomes after 30 are tiny, so they might not be visible in a karyotype. They probably realized that "chr 29" was really attached to some other chromosome.
