  1. The position of 30 chromosome pairs was determined, each. Abbreviations: C = center; CC = both homologues located in center; chr. = chromosome; n = homologue chromosomes located 'near by each other'; o = homologue chromosomes located 'on the opposite sides of the nucleus' (o); P = periphery; PC = both homologues located in periphery and center; PP = both homologues located in periphery; t = homologue chromosomes located 'close together'; see as well Figure 1.
