To put that another way, meiosis in humans is a division process that takes us from a diploid cell—one with two sets of chromosomes—to haploid cells—ones

Cells containing two sets of chromosomes are called diploid. Thus, meiosis I is the first round of meiotic division and consists of prophase I, they have a small region of homology that allows the X and Y chromosomes to pair up during16 Feb 2000 Meiosis reduces chromosome number from diploid (2n) to haploid (n) apart at the centromere, and segregate into two new (but genetically identical) cells. is reduced from 46 to 23 during the process of meiosis. Note: Developmental arrest in Meiosis I for 15 -30 years, until a girl goes through puberty!
