Genes are found in our chromosomes and parents pass these on to their offspring in their sex cells. Different versions of the same gene are called alleles, and these can determine features such as eye colour, and the inheritance of disorders such as Huntington's disease.

Chromosomes are structures found in the nucleus of cells. They consist of long strands of DNA.

Human body cells each contain 23 pairs of chromosomes
