Expert Answer:

The cell nucleus contains most of the cell's genetic material, organized as multiple long linear DNA molecules in association with various proteins to form chromosomes or chromatin. An important  function of the nucleus is to maintain the integrity of these genes and to control the activities of the cell by regulating gene expression.
