    • alleles of different genes assort independently of one another during gamete formation
  6. crossing over
    the exchange of genetic material between homologous chromosomes
  7. where in the body does sperm mature after completing meiosis?
    epididymis
  8. why is it advantageous for a single egg to be formed during meiosis in the human female?
    to gain more cytoplasm to nurture fertilization
  9. what is the function of the fertilization membrane?
