- A cell with two pairs of each set of chromosomes is called a [ diploid / haploid ] cell.
These cells are typically found throughout the body tissues and are called [ germ / somatic ] cells.
- A cell with only one of set of chromosomes is called [ diploid / haploid ] cell.
These types of cells are found in the reproductive organs and are called [ germ / somatic ] cells.
- Sperm and egg cells are called [ gametes / zygotes ]. A fertilized egg is a [ gamete / zygote ].
- A type of cell division that results in diploid cells: [ meiosis / mitosis ]
- A type of cell division that results in haploid cells. [ meiosis / mitosis ]
- When a sperm and egg combine, it is called _______________________________
- What is the diploid number for humans? _______ What is the haploid number? _______
- Matching chromosomes are called _____________________________________ pairs.
- During prophase I of meiosis, these pairs form a tetrad in a process called ______________________.
- When homologous chromosomes exchange genes, it is called: ______________________________.
- How many daughter cells are created at the end of meiosis I? _______ meiosis II? ______
- During meiosis, chromosomes will split into daughter cells randomly, making each gamete unique. This is called _____________________________________________________.
- The process by which sperm are made is called ____________________________________________.
- The process by which eggs are made is called ______________________________________________.
- During the creation of an oocyte, 3 additional haploid cells are created that will not be fertilized, these cells are called ________________________________________________.
