Chromosomes

Chromosomes are rod shaped structures made of DNA and proteins

Each species has a characterisitc number of chromosomes in each cell.


Chromosomes

Human and animal chromosomes are categorized as either sex chromosomes or autosomes. Sex chromosomes are chromosomes that determine the sex of a organism, and they may also carry genes for other characteristics.

Cells having two sets of chromosomes are diploid. Diploid cells have two autosomes for each homologous pair


Chromosomes

  • The DNA in eukaryotic cells wraps tightly around proteins called histones. Histones maintain the shape of the chromosome and aid in the tight packing of DNA
