Ten piglets born with normal wt and 10 low wt piglets were studied cytogenetically. There were, on the average, 1.22 .+-. 0.16% polyploid cells in the marrow of the former and 0.61 .+-. 0.9% cells in the latter. Apparently the level of polyploidy of somatic tissues may indicate the intensity of embryo growth during embryogenesis.
