Meiosis Formation of Gametes (Eggs & Sperm). Important Terminology. Diploid (2N): “two sets”; a cell that has 1 set of chromosomes from its female parent and 1 set from its male parent (=2 copies of each chromosome)
2n = 6
Occurs in Interphase
(same genes, different alleles)
Homologs separate in meiosis I and therefore different alleles separate.
The right number!
