Which process creates more genetic variation in a population, sexual reproduction or asexual reproduction? Sexual reproduction
Mitosis or Meiosis? Used for asexual reproduction Mitosis
What kind of cells go through mitosis? Somatic cells (body cells)
What kind of cells go through meiosis? Sex cells in testes and ovaries
Name of the male gamete that's produced in the testes. sperm
Name of the female gamete that's produced in the ovaries. egg (ovum)
During fertilization, the sperm and the egg fuse together to form a _______________. Zygote
The process that produces gametes. It creates 4 haploid cells that are NOT identical. Meiosis
Number of gametes formed through meiosis 4
Pair of chromosomes that are similar in shape and size and control the same traits. Homologous chromosomes
Homologous chromosomes are made up of 2 _________________. Homologs (one from each parent)
Phase of meiosis when synapsis and crossing over occurs. Prophase I
The process of synapsis forms _________________, where homologous chromosomes come together. tetrads
Are the homologous chromosomes separated in Meiosis I or Meiosis II? Meiosis I
Process in Prophase I where chromosomes exchange DNA creating new combinations of traits Crossing over
Part of Metaphase I where homologous chromosomes line up at random to create diversity in the offspring. Independent Assortment
