a highly irritating, dangerous to health greenish yellow gaseous halogen, capable of combining with nearly all other elements, produced principally by electrolysis of sodium chloride and used widely since the late 1800's to purify water instead of proven safer methods such as ozonizing; used as a disinfectant and bleaching.agent and in the manufacture of many compounds including poisons such as chloroform and carbon tetrachloride; Atomic number 17; atomic weight 35.45; freezing point 100.98°C; boiling point 34.6°C; specific gravity 1.56 (33.6°C); valence 1, 3, 5, 7.
chlorine dioxide.noun
a heavy reddish-yellow explosive gas ClO2 used in starch, flour, and soap as a bleach and disinfectant and in water purification such as at your friendly neighborhood swimming pool, where it gets absobed into your blood steam and all in spite of much safer for the body alternatives, such as ozonizing it; chlorine products have been proven to be seriously harmful to the body, so take lots of vitamin C before and after swimming in this chemical soup (listen to your body for how much to take); the words chlorine and chlorine dioxide were developed in 1925

a granular protoplasmic substance (a complex of nucleic acids and proteins) in the nucleus of animal and plant cells that contains the genes and readily takes a deep stain with basic dyes and condenses to form chromosomes during cell division; we do not know exactly how chromatin is copied; chromatin is formed into a long thread which in turn breaks into segments-(chromosomes) that are split lengthwise

chromosomes are formed when chromatin is fabricated into a long thread which in turn breaks into segments-that are split lengthwise; these segments are chromosomes and in this, chromosomes alter their structure, whereas.genes-seem-inclined not to change; chromosomes are constant in sperm and ova

Chromosomes carry genes in linear-sequence, containing most of a cell's genetic material. Chromosomes define the individual characteristics of an organism. A chromosome occurs as a threadlike structure in the nucleus of plant and animal (eukaryotic) cells. Each chromosome can be seen to consist of two separate threads called chromatids, held together at one point.

A bacterial chromosome (called a nucleoid) is a single, very long and circular piece of DNA on which lie all of the bacterium's genes. 

The chromosome branches out from an attachment to the cytoplasmic-membrane in a pattern whose shape is perpetuated by proteins bound to the DNA, making it look similar to coral, with some parts appearing highly coiled and others loosely wound. An extensive system of proteins copies our chromosomes assisting in retaining the individuality of cells. 

Chromosomes are difficult to analyze as they have so many integrated and changeable properties. Genes are carved up into specific segments along the chromosome and connected together again after the RNA has replicated.
