DNA is the smallest unit say a letter, then Gene it's like word, after that Chromosome it's like a sentence, Finally the biggest unit is Genome it's like a paragraph.

Genome = the total genetic content (many genes) contained in a haploid set of chromosomes in eukaryotes, in a single chromosome in bacteria, or in the DNA or RNA of viruses. a gene = One unit of the genome, consisting of a sequence of DNA that occupies a specific location on a chromosome and determines a particular characteristic in an organism

gene is part of DNA while genome is all set of genes in individual

there are thousands of genes in a chromosome

There are thousands of genes in a chromosome.

The gene is on the short (p) arm of the X chromosome. The gene is known as the dystrophin gene, or simply DMD. It is the longest gene known in the human genome, and codes for the protein dystrophin. According to Aminoff, 2005; the point mutation causing Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is exhibited on the Xp21 gene, belonging to the above stated chromosome.

A gene is one sequence of DNA that codes for a hereditary trait. The genome is all of an organism's genetic or hereditary information.

Recombinant DNA can replace a gene in an animal's genome.

A chromosome is that part of cell that carries the gene or the attributes of one organism to it's off spring.

Yes, there was. A specific gene in chromosome 7 of the human genome was given the official name of "Sonic", in a tribute to Sonic the Hedgehog. However the name has now been retracted, as have all the other "comedy" names for human genes, to make the field a more serious subject.

A gene is a section of a chromosome. So if a gene has a mutation, so does a chromosome.

A gene is a sequence of DNA that determines a particular trait. A chromosome is a coiled DNA chromosome that contains the organisms genetic code (aka- genes).

There are many more genes than chromosomes. The Human Genome Project currently has identified about 20,000 protein-coding genes, while there are only 46 chromosomes in the human genome.
