18 The Human Genome • DNA of human genome = organized into chromosomes • Humans have _____ pairs of chromosomes • Chromosome = a single piece of DNA that contains many genes • Gene = unit that codes for 1 protein • Genes contain introns (non-coding/regulatory elements) and exons (coding sequences) On average, a single human chromosome consists of a DNA molecule that is almost 5 cm long

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
