Meiosis

The cellular division that occurs in sexual gonads (ovaries and testicles) to reduce the number of chromosomes in the egg and the sperm by half (from 46 down to 23 chromosomes). After fertilization, when the egg and sperm unite, the normal complement of 46 chromosomes is re-established in the new embryo. Errors in the process of meiosis occur frequently in human eggs and may be one of the major causes of implantation failure and miscarriage in humans.
