Answer to Question #22885 in Biochemistry for Amanda
Strawberry (Fragaria ×ananassa) is octoploid with 56 chromosomes/cell (the basic set is x = 7 chromosomes). &
But what if the strawberry cells were much larger than the banana cells? Then there might be a lot fewer cells and, thus, possibly a lot less DNA. What if the banana had a lot lower water content than the strawberry?
Same thing--more cells in the banana than in the strawberry. Therefore banana could have more DNA because of large number of cells.
