Caption: Human chromosomes, coloured scanning election micrograph (SEM). Chromosomes are a packaged form of the genetic material DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The DNA condenses into chromosomes during cell replication for ease of division and transport into the new cell. Each chromosome consists of two identical strands (chromatids), aligned parallel to each other and joined at an area called the centromere. Magnification: x11,800 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
