Length of Continuous Chromosomes

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Continuous chromosomes have only two possible gene values, 0 and 1, so we can say that the alphabet size is two.  The total number of genes in a continuous chromosome (or its length) is determined by the resolution of the chromosome (8, 16, or 32 bits).  Refer to Chapter 2 for details.
