About This Simulation
Identify the main characteristics of male and female gametes: the sperm and ovum. You will use the light microscope for gametes identification. During this process, your knowledge about basic principle of meiosis and fertilization will be tested.
Meiosis comprises series of stages. You will use lily as model organism to observe the stages of meiosis and their characteristics. Both mitosis and meiosis are types of cell division. In this lab, you will learn the differences between them.
After you have prepared the sperm and ovum, you will learn how in-vitro fertilization is performed. Prior to embryo implantation, you will perform a diagnostic test to ensure the embryo has no chromosomal abnormality. Will Charlotte get pregnant with a healthy baby?
