Vocabulary Term Details

Autosomes

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autosomes)

An autosome is a chromosome that is not an allosome (i.e., not a sex chromosome). Autosomes appear in pairs whose members have the same form but which differ from other pairs in a diploid cell, whereas members of an allosome pair may differ from one another and thereby determine sex. (Wikipedia)
