Haploid vs diploid cells

  1. 1.  Chromosomes contain the genetic information Chromosomes are made up of DNA All cells contain chromosomes Usually chromosomes are in loose strands called chromatin However, when DNA is replicated or cells are ready to divide, the chromosomes tighten and coil up
  2. 2.  Every cell has chromosomes Chromosomes are usually found in pairs In humans, most body chromosomes are found in pairs There are usually 23 pairs of chromosomes 23 pairs equals 46 individual chromosomes A cell that has 23 pairs (or 46 chromosomes) is a DIPLOID cell
  3. 3.  Sex cells are produced by the second division in Meiosis Sex cells are NOT diploid cells Sex cells only have 23 chromosomes Sex cell have NO pairs of chromosomes Sex cells are HAPLOID cells
  4. 4.  Diploid – has pairs of chromosomes Haploid – has a single set of chromosomes In humans, diploid cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes In humans, haploid cells have 23 chromosomes (NO PAIRS)
  5. 5.  Diploid – has pairs of chromosomes Haploid – has a single set of chromosomes In humans, diploid cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes In humans, haploid cells have 23 chromosomes (NO PAIRS)
