Chromosome x

The X chromosome both unites and divides the sexes: everyone has it, but whereas men make do with a single copy, women have a backup. Newly sequenced and analysed, this tantalizing tranche of DNA has revealed a few surprises, not least the discovery that a female's 'spare' X chromosome may be anything but.
