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.

chlorophyl.also.chlorophyll.noun
the green coloring in plants, which in the presence of sunlight, converts carbon dioxide-(CO2) and water into carbohydrates; that process is known as photosynthesis.

chromatin.noun
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 
chromatinic-adjective

chromodynamics.noun-(used with a singular verb

chromosome
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. In this, chromosomes alter their structure, whereas genes-seem-inclined not to change.

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.
