Why are chromosomes paired?
Asked by somyap | 22nd May, 2010, 02:30: PM
The occurrence of pairs of chromosomes in our karyotype is a result of our sexual origins. We inherit one member of each chromosome pair from each parent. So the 46 chromosomes in our somatic cells are actually two sets of 23 chromosomes - a maternal set and a paternal set.
