Term Detail
GO term:chromosome organization
Synonym: chromosome organisation
Synonym: chromosome organization and biogenesis
Synonym: maintenance of genome integrity
Synonym: nuclear genome maintenance
GO id:GO:0051276
Definition:A process that is carried out at the cellular level that results in the assembly, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of chromosomes, structures composed of a very long molecule of DNA and associated proteins that carries hereditary information. This term covers covalent modifications at the molecular level as well as spatial relationships among the major components of a chromosome.
Number of paths to term: 2
