explain the formation of male and female gametes
Gametes are reproductive cells that combine during sexual production to form a zygote. The male gamete is called sperm while the female is called ova. Both gametes are formed through a process known as meiosis. During this process, the DNA is reproduced one at a time and split into two cells, then split into two more other cells, allowing only half of the pairs of chromosomes in each cell. These cells will then mature into gametes with only one set of chromosomes.
