To remember that:
The genome is made up of all the chromosomes,
Chromosomes are made up of DNA,
DNA is made up of Genes (segments),
Genes (segments) are made up of nucleotides,
Nucleotides are made up of phosphates, sugars and bases’
Then remember the following story:
Genome – Home to all the chromosomes
The Genies home (genome) had many chimneys.
The genome is all your chromosomes, home to all your genetic information. The information needed to build a specific organism and allow it to grow and develop.
The human genome is made up of 46 chromosomes
The genome of chimpanzees is made up of 48 chromosomes
The genome of the yellow fever mosquito is made up of just 6 chromosomes
