information DNA mitosis A special type ofdivision meiosis produces nonidentical daughter cells gametes or sperm and egg cells Cellular Organization of the Genetic Material All the DNA in a cell constitutes the cell s genome A genome can consist of a single DNA molecule common in prokaryotic cells or a number of DNA molecules common in eukaryotic cells DNA molecules in a cell are packaged in chromosomes Every eukaryotic species has a characteristic number of chromosomes in each cell nucleus Somatic Cells nonreproductive cells have two sets of chromosomes DlPLOlD Gametes reproductive cells have half as many chromosomes as somatic cells HAPLOID Sperm and egg form a ZYGOTE diploid Eukaryotic chromosomes consists of chromatin a complex of DNA and proteins that condenses during cell division Distribution of Chromosomes During Eukaryotic Cell Division In preparation for cell division DNA is replicated and the chromosomes condense Each duplicated chromosome has two sister
