Expert Answer:

  • The DNA molecules found in mitochondria and chloroplasts are small and circular, much like the DNA of a typical bacterium.
  • There are usually many copies of DNA in a single mitochondrion or chloroplasts.
  • Non-nuclear DNA is often inherited uniparentally, which implies that the offspring get DNA only from the male or the female parent, not both. 
  • In humans, for example, children get mitochondrial DNA from their mother (but not their father).
