There exist a co-ordinate system from chromosomes like "12p11.3". In this system, first integer range from 1 to 23 i.e it takes homologous chromosomes as a pair. If we want to distinguish among homologous chromosomes, how do we refer to each on of the pair? Is it possibly to determine if one chromosome from a pair of homologous chromosomes is from father or mother?
