Schematic illustration of the meiotic process. (a) Homologous chromosome synapsis and crossing over/chiasma formation at the Pachytene stage of Prophase 1 and the derivative bivalents at the following Metaphase I. (b) Progression through Metaphase I to Anaphase I leading to the halving of the chromosome number, Metaphase II and Anaphase II where the chromatids separate (similar to mitotic Anaphase) and Telophase II comprising the four haploid daughter cell nuclei.
