Chromosomes

Very long DNA molecules that contain our genes. (10-20 thousand genes in each chromosome). The number of chromosomes varies depending on the species. Humans have 23 chromosome pairings, one from each biological parent. The 23rd pairing determines your sex. XX female: XY male.

Chromosomes

Chromosomes: The microscopically visible carriers of the genetic material. They are composed of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and proteins and, under a microscope, look like little rods. Humans normally have 46 chromosomes -- 44 autosomes (nonsex chromosomes) plus XX sex chromosomes in the case of the female and XY sex chromosomes in the case of the ...

chromosomes

The self- replicating genetic structures of cells containing the cellular DNA that bears in its nucleotide sequence the linear array of genes. In prokaryotes, chromosomal DNA is circular, and the entire genome is carried on one chromosome. Eukaryotic genomes consist of a number of chromosomes whose DNA is associated with different kinds of proteins...
