I'm in 9th grade and we are currently studying genetics, but more specifically we are studying aneuploidy. We were given a lab in which we were given some chromosomes and we had to figure out what was wrong witht those chromosomes, and what happens as a result of the abnormality. In my lab, i had an extra chromosome 21, which i know is down syndrome, and an extra chromosome 10. I don't know what the trisomic chromosome 10 mean. Please help. Thank you


I hope this is what you are after.
