    Chromatin

    -loosely coiled DNA wrapped around histone protein so easily organized within nucleus. It’s easier to "read" in this form

    Chromosome

    -tightly coiled DNA-chromatin coiled even more tightly, only found prior to cell division and it makes it easier to move into the new cell
