How many DNA molecules are there in a chromosome?

1.

A chromosome is a single DNA molecule that contains many genes. It is the coiled, organized physical structure that a long strand of DNA molecule assumes for more stability and function. Chromosomes play an important role during cell division as it must be properly replicated, divided, and passed onto daughter cells for survival and genetic diversity.
