I was doing this question that asked: "How many centromeres does a typical chromosome have?"
I thought one and the answer was:"One, except for holocentric chromosomes."
So then what are "holocentric chromosomes"?
I assume they would be chromosomes with more than one centromere, but then why do they need more than one centromere? And where can I get some more information on them? I tried googling but did not find much info on this.
