    So far, we have mainly been considering diploid organisms—organisms with two homologous chromosome sets in each cell. As we have seen, the diploid condition is designated 2n, where n stands for the number of chromosomes in one chromosome set. For example, the pea cell contains two sets of seven chromosomes, so 2n = The organisms that we encounter most often in our daily lives Author: Anthony Jf Griffiths, Jeffrey H Miller, David T Suzuki, Richard C Lewontin, William M Gelbart. Diploid definition: (of cells or organisms) having pairs of homologous chromosomes so that twice the haploid | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples.

      This feature is not available right now. Please try again later. The Diploids is a tour de force and is worth the price of the entire collection of stories. It is the only novella and this allows here to expand on her story writing. And expand she does. The story clocks in at only 66 pages, but reads like a much longer story. Her `chapters' of 8 or so pages were so dense, that I was only able to read one at /5(3).

    Ditloids puzzles provide an easy source of materials for organizational development and team building exercises, team building games and quizzes of all sorts. Ditloids are fun because the format is very quick and simple, and they combine aspects of maths, logic, lateral thinking and general knowledge. In a diploid state the haploid number is doubled, thus, this condition is also known as 2n. An example of a cell in a diploid state is a somatic cell. In humans, the somatic cells typically contain 46 chromosomes in contrast to human haploid gametes (egg and sperm cells) that have only 23 chromosomes. Word origin: from Greek diplous, double.
