How do meiosis and sexual reproduction fertilization produce offspring that differ genetically from the parents?


Meiosis maintains genetic diversity in two ways: 1) Genetic recombination: the exchange of genetic material between sister chromatids 2) By random assortment of paternal and maternal chromosomes and the alleles of genes they contain.

Thanks for using AllExperts. The topic of genetic variability in sexually reproducing organisms is a fairly complex one, more so than I can adequately cover in this medium. To that
1. Meiosis. There are 2 events during meiosis that increase genetic variability. a. Crossing over. During prophase I, homologous chromosomes synapse to form tetrads (also called bivalents
Ughhhhh I'd have to break out my biology text book if you want a good answer that includes all of those terms, but I can't be bothered so I'll give you a brief overview. In meiosis
