Chromosomes
a thread-like structure of nucleic acids and protein found in the nucleus of most living cells, carrying genetic information in the form of genes.
1 of 5
Allele
each of two or more alternative forms of a gene that arise by mutation and are found at the same place on a chromosome.

DNA
deoxyribonucleic acid, a self-replicating material which is present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.
