Eukaryotic Chromosome Structure
C value - the amount of DNA per haploid cell (usually expressed as
picograms) or the number of kilobases per haploid cell
Eukaryotic organisms appear to have 2-10 times as many genes as prokaryotes,
But, they have many orders of magnitude more DNA in the cell.
Furthermore, the amount of DNA per genome is correlated not with the presumed
evolutionary complexity of a species
The amount of DNA is not correlated with the number of chromosomes
C value paradox - the amount of DNA in the haploid cell of an organism
is not related to its evolutionary complexity.
