Chromosomes are made from DNA. Genes are short sections of DNA. 
DNA (deoxyribose nucleic acid) molecules are large and complex. They carry the genetic code that determines the characteristics of a living thing. A gene is a short section of DNA. Each gene codes for a specific protein by specifying the order in which amino acids must be joined together. The cell’s nucleus contains chromosomes made from long DNA molecules.
