, diploid cells undergo 2 cell divisions that result in 4 haploid cells. Meiosis occurs in sex cells, produces gametes, increases genetic diversity and produces genetically unique cells. It takes place only at certain times in an organism’s life cycle and is involved in sexual reproduction.
* Sex linkage
Traits that are sex-linked show different inheritance patterns in males and females. Besides determining male and female characteristics of organisms, some other traits are controlled by genes on the sex chromosomes. Mutations of these genes can result in various disorders such as color...

with major genetic variation. After spindle formation in meiosis, different homologous chromosomes pair up at the newly formed nuclei. This ensures the variation. It is how gametes are formed.
