what are chromosomes and what are there functions

Chromosomes are thread like structure made up of DNA and proteins. They are present inside the nucleus. Genes are located on the chromosomes in the form of linear array. Genes are responsible for the passage of characters from the parents to the offspring (inheritance). Genes also control the function important for life processes in the cells these functions are known as metabolic functions. As genes are located on the chromosomes, it can be said that chromosomes control inheritance and metabolism .

Chromosomes are thread like structure forming a network within the nucleus. Chromosomes are generally paired like structures. Each member of a pair is called chromatid. Chromosomes carry the characters from parents to their children. Thus, they help in the inheritance of characters. Chromosomes also control the life functions taking place inside the cell. Each chromosomes is a combination of many genes on it.

chromosome is an organized structure of DNA and protein found in cells. It is a single piece of coiled DNA containing many genesregulatory elements and othernucleotide sequences. Chromosomes also contain DNA-bound proteins, which serve to package the DNA and control its functions. Chromosomal DNA encodes most or all of an organism's genetic information; some species also contain plasmids or other extrachromosomal genetic elements.
