Quick fact All humans on the face of Earth are about 99 percent genetically identical! ” —Gregor Mendel, 1883 47 Gametes and Sexual Reproduction Human cells have two sets of 23 chromosomes—a total of 46 in each cell. But in certain cells, a process called meiosis takes place. This process produces cells that have only 23 chromosomes each—half the amount of other cells. These cells with half the amount of genetic material are known as gametes. In males, gametes are called sperm. In females, they are called eggs.

The nuclear membrane reappears around each new nucleus. The long fibers disappear. The cell splits apart. There are now four daughter cells, each with only 23 chromosomes. 49 Genes and DNA Differentiation Chromosomes carry the cell’s DNA. DNA is short for deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA is in the shape of a spiral ladder or staircase. It is about 1,000 times the length of the actual cell, so it folds into itself to fit inside the nucleus. If it were an actual staircase, it would be about 250 million steps.
