  • Sexual Reproduction.
    • haploid cell contains 23 chromosomes half the genetic material needed.
      • diploid cells contain 46 the full set of chromosomes
    • gametes are sex cells needed for sexual reproduction.
    • the fusion of gametes between male and female is called fertilization.
    • organisms have sex cells. male sex cells are sperm and women is egg
    • the cell created at the end of reproduction is called a zygote cell.
      • this is a diploid cell because is contains half chromes from mom and half from dad.
    • asexual reproduction clones the exact same genetic material twice and doesn't occur the fusion of gametes.
    • sexual reproduction leads to variety of offspring.
