If a diploid tomato cell has 24 chromosomes how many chromosomes will the tomatos sex cells have?
Diploid cells are cells that have the full number of chromosomes and so have two copies of each chromosome. For example, all human diploid cells have 46 chromosomes (23 pairs). All human cells are diploid, excluding the gametes (sperm cells and egg cells), which are haploid. Examples of diploid cells in humans are muscle cells and liver cells.
