exchange of chromosomal segments between a pair of homologous chromosomes during pro-phase I of meiosis.
having two copies of each chromosome (2n).
process by which haploid gametes combine, forming a diploid cell with 2n chromosomes, with n chromosomes from the female parent and n chromosomes forom the male parent.
a haploid sex cell, formed during meiosis, that can combine with another haploid sex cell and produce a diploid fertilized egg.
functional unit that controls inherited trait expression that is passed on from one generation to another generation.
cell with half the number of chromosomes (n) as a diploid (2n) cell.
