Representation of t (6, 8). a Giemsa stained karyotype picture of t (6, 8) carrier (Pig2). The derived chromosomes are indicated with the note ‘RT’. b Graphical representation of the double stranded break and connection type, and the derived chromosomes (der). Head and tail are the two resulting ends of the chromosome due to the breakpoint, with head being the top part (start of chromosome till breakpoint), and tail the bottom part (breakpoint till end of chromosome). The grey dashed lines show how the junctions were created, here 3′ to 5′ and 5′ to 3′. c The sequence of the derived chromosomes at the junction. Red sequence indicates the overlap (microhomology) in sequence at the junction. In both b and c chromosome 6 is in blue and 8 in green
