what is the difference between chromosome and gene?
explain the table in NCERT which differentiates b/w the two, i found both of them to be the same then where is the difference?
Both chromosomes and genes occur in pairs in diploid organism.
Both chromosomes and genes loose their paired condition during gamete formation.
It is the pairing and separation of a pair of chromosomes that ultimately leads to segregation of the pair of factors they carry.
