 Chromatin is a mix of DNA and proteins in a non-condensed state. Chromatin in a condensed state is called a chromosome.

 The DNA (negatively charged) winds around histone octamer (positively charged) to form nucleosome. One nucleosome has approx. 200 bp of DNA. Nucleosomes in a chromatin resemble beads present on strings. Beads on string structure in chromatin are further packaged to form chromatin fibres, which further coil and condense to form chromosomes during metaphase. Chromatin can further be classified as euchromatin and heterochromatin.
