What is produced by meiotic cell division?

Question:

What is produced by meiotic cell division?

Where does meiosis occur?

Meiosis occurs in the gonads (either testes or ovaries), which are part of the male or female reproductive system. Gametogonia (either spermatogonia or oogonia) undergo meiosis.

Answer and Explanation:

Meiosis produces 4 daughter cells - gametes, either sperm or eggs. They are genetically different from their diploid mother cell as they are haploid. Gametes fuse during fertilisation.
