Chromosome Quizzes & Trivia

Everyone has chromosomes in their body; they are vital to our existence and contain the DNA which makes us who we are. Do you know about chromosomes, and what they provide in our bodies? If you try one of our specifically created chromosome quizzes you can find out how much knowledge you have on the subject.

Do you know which species contain plasmids or what chromatin is? Do you know who Walter Sutton and Theodore Boveri are and what they have to do with the knowledge we have of chromosomes today? If you’re interested in science, and the human body, then you’ve probably read a lot about chromosomes. If you want to test your memory then take one of chromosome quizzes.
