Autosomes (from Greek auto = self and soma = body) are all the chromosomes that are not involved in the formation of the sex. Almost all cells of the human body have 22 pairs of chromosomes and two sex chromosomes, namely XX in females and XY in males. The first 22 pairs of chromosomes are numbered in order of length, - from the longest to the shortest -, from 1 to 22.
