Unit 5 Vocab

Could you explain haploid, diploid, chromosomes, and sister chromatids? Caroline’s explaination was good I just wish there was more time spent on it.

Diploid=2
Haploid=1
Sister=2 that are the same

haploid: one copy of each chromosome
diploid: two copies of each chromosome
homologous chromosomes: two duplicated chromosomes containing same genes
sister chromatids: one half of duplicated chromosomes and contains exact same copy of info
