When cells undergo meiosis, the main result is the creation of sex cells called gametes. Male organisms produce sperm via the process of meiosis, while female organisms produce ova cells. In some species, individuals pos... More »

Meiosis is the process in which cells divide to produce sex cells. Meiosis takes a single cell and divides it into four different cells with half of the necessary chromosomes for human development. Meiosis creates both e... More »
