  5. Plant cell possess normally larger chromosomes then the animal cells. (Trillium have longest chromosomes 32 mm at metaphase).
  6. Monocot plants have larger chromosomes as compared to dicot plants.
  7. Haploid set of chromosomes alongwith all its genes are called genome. In somatic cells of animals and higher plants there are two genomes. Their gamets or gametophytic cells have one genome.
