The Y chromosome is ane o twa sex chromosomes (allosomes) in mammals, includin humans, an mony ither ainimals. The ither is the X chromosome. Y is the sex-determinin chromosome in mony species, syne it is the presence or absence o Y that determines the male or female sex o offspring produced in sexual reproduction. In mammals, the Y chromosome contains the gene SRY, which causes testis development.
