Chromosome 13 News and Research

RSS
Humans normally have 46 chromosomes in each cell, divided into 23 pairs. Two copies of chromosome 13, one copy inherited from each parent, form one of the pairs. Chromosome 13 is made up of about 114 million DNA building blocks (base pairs) and represents between 3.5 percent and 4 percent of the total DNA in cells.
