First 51 words of the document:

Crossing over
Crossing over and independent segregation of the
homologous chromosomes helps genetic variation. Crossing over is when chromatids (still in bivalent
pairs) cross over, forming a chiasma. When the two formed gametes fuse at fertilisation randomly, yet
more variation is produced amongst the offspring.
