Left: Each chromosome divides longitudinally into two chromatids; (right) at the molecular level, the single DNA molecule of each chromosome replicates, producing two DNA molecules, one for each chromatid. Also shown are various combinations of a gene with normal allele b and mutant form b, caused by a change of a single base pair from GC to AT. Notice that at the DNA level the two chromatids produced when a chromosome replicates are always identical with each other and with the original chromosome. ...
