Day 360 (21pter-21p11.2): Chromosome 23 and Down

It has been suggested that this Early Netherlandish painting depicts a person with Down syndrome as one of the angels.

Day 360 has 11 protein-coding genes (browser view) and is the beginning of the smallest chromosome: Chromosome 23.

It’s no coincidence that Chromosome 23 is the smallest chromosome and also the one that is most compatible with having three copies, which happens in Down Syndrome.
