What phase is responsible for me looking like my father?

Post by blackrat » Mon Mar 05, 2012 5:45 pm

I don't understand the movements and division of this things. What movement in a phase of the meiosis caused me to look allot like my father? I know for a fact that its not the prophase I, but i dont understand which other phase could be, they all look and do the same thing to me..

Also if you could help me on this, How many ovules are produced by each primary oocyte? Its not 2.

I apreciate the help, i have to write a paper but i dont understand any of this, i just need a place to start it without making the same mistakes i did last time. I just need to know which is the right answer of the question and i'll just copy paste the information from wikipedia.

Probably the one where are chromosomes segregatted. Or more specifically, where they are attached to different sides of the cell.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I would advise against copying information from Wikipedia, for a variety of educational and ethical reasons.
If arguing with people on the internet helps me understand science, then I will do it. FOR THE CHILDREN.

Prophase 1 of Meiosis - where crossing over takes place, and the genes responsible for the formation your father's facial muscle and other organs on his face would have been intact during the cross over...
