I'm just learning mitosis for the first time so bare with me here.


I understand that during interphase the chromosomes are difficult to see. Also they duplicate during S-phase.


1)Are they chromatin at this point or still chromosomes?


2)How are the male and female traits divided at this point? If they are chromatin how are they divided? If they are chromosomes how are they divided?

Incidentally, the DNA of eukaryotes is always in chromatin form. When they form the tight bundles that you can see as individual chromosomes it's called heterochromatin, and when it is in its normal, dispersed form it is called euchromatin.
