The cell nucleus contains the DNA inherited from each parent, which is used to control the cell's activities and to determine hereditary traits.

The mitochondria also contain DNA, called mtDNA, so that they can reproduce themselves as needed. The more active a cell is, the more mitochondria it will need.

Chloroplasts also contain DNA, called ctDNA.
