Chromosome. Computer artwork of a condensed chromosome. Chromosomes, which consist of two identical chromatids joined at a centromere (centre), are composed of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) coiled around proteins. DNA contains sections, called genes, which encode the body's genetic information, determining each cell's structure, function and behaviour.
