1. Each chromosome lines up alongside its homologous pair
2. Chromatids of each pair become twisted around each other at chiasmata
3. Tensions created during this twisting process- causes portions of chromatids to break off
4. Broken portions then re-join with chromatids of its homologous partner. Usually equivalent portions are
exchanged…read more

Homologous pairs line up randomly down the centre of the cell
On of each pair will pass into each daughter cell and with which one of any of the other pairs DEPENDENT on
how the pairs lined up in the parent cell
These haploid gametes must then fuse to restore diploid state; random fusion= variation…read more
