Is a zygote cell would you expect to be a haploid?
No - a zygote will be diploid. The sperm and egg are haploid - but they combine to create the zygote - which means it will have 2 sets of chromosomes. ...
What is the difference between haploid diploid and zygote?
There are two types of cells in the body - haploid cells and diploid cells. The difference between haploid and diploid cells is related to the number of chromosomes that the cell contains. ...

Does a zygote have a haploid number of chromosomes?
No, a zygote has one set of chromosomes from each parent - and is therefore diploid. Sex cells (gametes) are haploid before they combine to form a zygote. ...

Does fusion of the haploid gametes produce diploid or haploid cell?
a haploid cell because each half set of chromosomes combines to form a new diploid cell a zygote ...
Asked in Biology
Why are two haploid cells needed to make a zygote?
Mammals cannot survive as a haploid cell, and meiosis creates four gametes that are haploid, so the two haploid cells need to combine in order to have a diploid zygote that is also genetically different. ...
