    However, fertilisation can take place during this process. Fertilisation is the joining of a male and female haploid gamete. Haploid means that the sex cell contains one half of the chromosomes (23 pairs) and half of the genetic information of the body cell. The female sex cell is the oocyte, and the male is the sperm cell. These join to form a diploid zygote, which has 46 chromosomes, two sets of 23 chromosomes from the male and female gamete. The zygote then goes on to become an embryo. (BBC,…
