Lynn Van Gorp

Publisher: Teacher Created Materials ISBN: 9780743905978

To understand why humans are the way they are, look at cells—especially the material in the center, called chromosomes. People have 23 pairs of chromosomes, so each cell has 46 in all. Parents pass chromosomes to their children. DNA carries the genetic information in alleles and is the blueprint for the cells of an organism. DNA tells one's body how to put certain materials together to produce certain traits.
