Caption: Male human genome. Artwork depicting the chromosomes in a human male's genome. Known as the book of life, the genome contains all the genetic information, in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, represented by the words in the open books) that will determine a person's inherited characteristics. There are 23 pairs of chromosomes (sections of coiled DNA) in the human genome, each represented here by a book. Half are inherited from the father (top, blue), and half from the mother (bottom, pink). The end books at far right represent the sex chromosomes, or allosomes. Males have two distinct allosomes (XY), while females have two of the same kind (XX).
