Quick Question on my notes (Chromosomes and Chromatin)

Postby pommy » Sun Nov 02, 2008 3:21 pm

Our teacher kind of goes all over the place when giving notes, and some of my notes are out of order...
Just want a little help to try and fix a few things.

One part of the notes states that Cells are in 2 states (dividing or not dividing)
I have Chromosomes under dividing and Chromatin under not dividing... Is this correct or did I just butcher my notes =P.

thanks

In a crude way of saying, it is correct.

Chromatin is a complex combination of DNA and protein. Chromosomes become visible when a cell is undergoing mitosis. Correct me if I'm wrong.

You're right. Did anyone say otherwise?
