All known organisms are composed of one or more cells, each of which in turn contains one or more chromosomes (that is, DNA strands) which have the function of being a "blueprint" of the organism to which they belong. One chromosome can be conceptually divided into genes, functional blocks of DNA encode a given protein. Each gene is located in a certain position (place) within the chromosome it is part of.
