Question: do men and woman have much of a different in genes and why?

  1. Hi awesomekid,

    Cool genetics questions from you! there are quite a few differenced in the genes of men and women and that is mainly due to the sex chromosomes.

    So, you know that humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes and the sex chromosomes are X and Y. Women have two X chromosomes but men only have one – the other one is the Y chromosome and this accounts for many of the differences in men compared with women.

    Of course… there are many other differences in men and women… but a lot comes down to X and Y!
