A chromosome is a threadlike structure containing DNA and

histones. It carries the genetic information from one generation to

the other.

A chromosome is an 'X' shaped gene which contains DNA, found

inside living cells. Chromosomes are easily seen using a microscope

and are normally invisible most of the time (this period of time

called 'interphase') but become visible when the cell starts to

multiply.
