How is the equal genetic contribution of male and female parents ensured in the progeny
Asked by | 21st Feb, 2008, 07:18: PM
During gamete formation, each gamete receives half the number of chromosomes i.e. 23. During sexual reproduction, a female gamete (having 23 chromosomes) fuses with a male gamete (having 23 chromosomes) to form zygote. Zygote is diploid which contains 23 chromosomes from mother and 23 from father. In this way, an equal genetic contribution of male and female parents is ensured in the progeny.

- how is hereditary changes responsible for evolution
- Dear experts, Pls help me out with this question with a proper solution. Thank you. Q) In a cross, AABbDdEEGg X AaBbddEegg, what will be the frequency of the genotype AaBbddEegg ?
- Green and red colored seeds are recessive and dominant trait respectively. Out of F1 and F2 in which generation will the green seed appear, if both parents are not hybrid.
- Mendeleev laws class 10
- What is sex determination
- what is the law about genetic information
- Traitsts acquired during the lifetime of an individuals are not inherited why
- why is variation beneficial to the species but not necessarily for the individual
- how we determine the genotype and phenotype of an organisms
