Abstract A method for the preparation and utilization of the pachytene chromosome karyotype of the pigeonpea is presented. Major chromomeres, most of which were compound structures, were used to characterize individual chromosomes. The karyotype was prepared from a large number of cells showing only one or a few analyzable chromosomes, rather than scarce cells showing the entire chromosome complement. As all 11 chromomere patterns were identified in each of two cells showing all 11 chromosomes clearly, this indicated that the entire genome had been described. A key, based on distribution and structure of major chromomeres, provides a rapid means of identification and comparison.
