I want to know how many chromosomes humans have.
How many chromosomes do humans have?
Human have total 46 chromosomes i.e. 23 pairs. In males it is 22 pairs of autosomes +X and Y chromosomes and in females it is 22 pairs of autosomes + a pair of X chromosomes.
We have 46 chromosomes. They come as 23 pairs.
Note that the size of an organism hasnothing to do with its chromosome number. (I find this interesting.) A shrimp has 254 and a horse has 66. Weird huh.....
