Chromosomes are long pieces of DNA found in the center (nucleus) of cells. DNA is the material that holds genes. It is considered the building block of the human body.


Chromosomes come in pairs. Normally, each cell in the human body has 23 pairs of chromosomes (46 total chromosomes). Half come from the mother; the other half come from the father.

Two of the chromosomes (the X and the Y chromosome) determine if you are born a boy or a girl (your gender). They are called sex chromosomes:

Females have 2 X chromosomes.
Males have 1 X and 1 Y chromosome.
The mother always contributes an X chromosome to the child. The father may contribute an X or a Y. Therefore, it is the father that determines the gender of the child.

A chromosome is an organized structure of DNA and protein that is found in cells. A chromosome is a single piece of DNA that contains many genes, regulatory elements and other nucleotide sequences. Chromosomes also contain DNA-bound proteins, which serve to package the DNA and control its functions

You cant really be missing chromosome 7, it can be flipped, which means that both pairs are derived from one parent. Chromosome 7 contains about 5% of all DNA material, and accounts for many genetic disorders and some cancers.

A thread like structure in the nucleus is called chromosomes.These carry genes and help in inheritance or transfer of characters from the parents to the offspring.The chromosomes can be seen only when the cell divides.
