A base pair is, one pair of nitrogenous bases opposing each other on each strand of DNA. A base pair will always be either Adenine & Thymine or Cytosine & Guanine. A series of base pairs in a row which codes for a single protein is called a Gene and a Gene's function is dictated by the order of base pairs inside it. As you can see, we have jumped up one order of size. First we had single units called base-pairs, and then we saw that these base-pairs combine to form larger units called Genes. Now we will go up an order again - A Chromosome is composed of a combination of Genes, as well as non-coding regions. Chromosomes are composed of a series of Genes, and Genes are composed of a series of base-pairs.
