Are telomeres and telomerase the same thing ? Or no ? If not , what is the difference ?
They are not the same thing.
Telomeres are essentially repetitive DNA sequences placed at the end of chromosomes to prevent deterioration, and they also help to stabilize the chromosome. Telomerase is the enzyme which causes these repetitive DNA sequences to be added to the end of your chromosomes.
