||Functional unit that controls inherited trait expression is passed on from one generation to another generation.
||One of two paired chromosomes, one from each parent, that carries genes for a specific trait at the same place.
||A haploid sex cell, formed during meiosis that can combine with another haploid sex cell and produce a diploid fertilized egg.
||Process by which haploid gametes combine, forming a diploid cell with 2n chromosomes, with n chromosomes from the female parent and n chromosomes from the male parent.
||Reduction division process, occurring only in reproductive cell, which one diploid (2n) cell produces four haploid (n) cells that are not genetically identical.
||Exchange of chromosomal segments between a pair of homologous Chromosome during prophase 1 of meiosis.
||Cell with half the number of chromosomes (n) as a diploid (2n) cell.
||Having two copies of each chromosome (2n).
||The homologous Chromosomes condense, they begin to form pairs in a process.
