Want this question answered?
n! Or more specifically, 2n = diploid cell n = haploid cell Think of n as one set of chromosomes
if 2N=Diploid which is two complete sets of chromosomes the at one complete set is haploid that means its 1n or just n= haploid
The difference is the color
An organism is One person/animal (or w/e the organism is) and the population is all of them in total.
I think you are referring to a diploid organism: one that has two of each chromosome.
In one sense it is called a Diploid Organism.
Meiosis reduces number of chromosomes to one half . when two gametes fuse , it restores original diploid number of chromosomes .With out this diploid number of chromosomes could not be maintained .
Diploid is an organism/cell having normally two copies of each DNA molecule (i.e. chromosome). Haploid is the one having one copy. Therefore, humans are diploid organisms but bacteria are haploid
From a text book.. diploid cell- In an organism that reproduses sexually, a cell containing two homologous sets of chromosomes, one set of inherited from each parent; a 2n cell haploid cell- In the life cycle of an organism that reproduces sexually, a cell containing a single set of chromosomes; an n cell ...diploid?
Meiosis is needed to produce healthy offspring with a diploid chromosome set. Therefore, the diploid set from the mother as well as that one of the father needs to be reduced in half. So these reduced cells with haploid chromosome sets can merge and produce one diploid set. Without that reduction, two diploid sets would merge and the offspring would have a tetraploid set (=4 different allels for one gene). Maybe that's not that fatal. But just think furhter. If two of such children would reproduce, the outcome would be offspring with a octaploid set (= 8 copies for the same gene)!
The difference is with an asexually produced organism, the organism is created using only one parent. With a sexually produced organism, the organism is produced using two parents
2 one from the mother and one from the father assuming that it is of a diploid organism also if there is no genetic disease such as downs syndrome that could cause multiple copies of genes
Because the offspring of an organism with a desirable inherited trait is more likely to survive than the offspring of an organism with a desirable acquired trait (because the offspring of an organism with a desirable acquired trait will not have its parent's desirable trait).
16 (haploid number = n, and diploid number =2n) so if n=8, the diploid number is 2x8 = 16
As simply as possibly, the difference in genetic mapping between haploid and diplois organisms are the genes. The haploid organism has only one allele which is either dominant or recessive, while the diploid organism has two alleles of which one is dominant and the other recessive.
