Caption: Human female karyotype. The complete set of chromosomes of an organism is known as the karyotype, here a set of normal human female chromosomes. Humans have 46 chromosomes in most cells, consisting of 23 pairs made up of one from each parent. Chromosomes contain deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which encodes genetic information (in sections called genes) that is passed from parents to their offspring. DNA is stored in the nuclei of cells. The XX chromosome pair at centre right indicates that this person is female. Males have an XY chromosome pair instead (the empty space for a Y chromosome is at bottom right).
