How is genetic material passed on from parent to child?
This section of the website will explain how genetic material is passed on from parent to child and how the fertilised egg divides to form a human being.
By the end of this section you should be able to:
- explain the role of meiosis in the production of sperm cells or egg cells
- describe the mechanisms by which genetic variation is introduced during meiosis
- explain the role of mitosis in producing genetically identical daughter cells
