2 sets that have corresponding chromosomes homozygous
contains both sets of homologous chromosomes diploid
one set of chromosomes haploid
chromosomes cut in half in separation meiosis
structure with four chromatids tetrad
homologous chromosomes that form tetrads crossing over
next stage of fertilized egg zygote
sperm and egg are also called gametes
chromosomes segregate independently
True or False The offspring of 2 parents obtains a single copy of every GENE from each parent true
True or False A GAMETE must contain one complete set of genes True
True or False Genes are located at specific positions on SPINDLES False/chromosomes
True or False A pair of corresponding chromosomes is HOMOZYGOUS False/homologous
True or False One member of each homologous chromosome pair comes from each GENE False/Parent
True or False A cell that contains both sets of homologous chromosomes is HAPLOID False/ diploid
True or False The gametes of sexually reproducing organisms are HAPLOID True
True or False If an organisms haploid number is 6, it's diploid number is -3- False/12
PHASES Each replicated chromosome pairs with its corresponding homologous chromosome prophase 1
PHASES Crossing over occurs between tetrads prophase 1
PHASES Paired homologous chromosomes line up across the center of the cell Metaphase 1
PHASES Spindle fibers pull each homologous chromosome pair toward an opposite end of the cell Anaphase 1
PHASES A nuclear membrane forms around each cluster of chromosomes and cytokinesis follows, forming two new cells. Telophase 1
PHASES chromosomes consist of two chromatids, but they do not pair to form tetrads Prophase 2
