what are gametes

Your friends are correct,

Gametes are sex cells produced by the sex organs. Gametes are of two types, male gamete (sperm) and female gamete (egg).  The gametes on fusion give rise to the zygote.

@Others...Good work..keep posting!

gamete (from Ancient Greek γαμέτης gametes "husband" / γαμετή gamete "wife") is a cell that fuses with another cell during fertilization (conception) in organisms that reproduce sexually. In species that produce two morphologically distinct types of gametes, and in which each individual produces only one type, a female is any individual that produces the larger type of gamete—called an ovum (or egg)—and a male produces the smaller tadpole-like type—called a sperm. This is an example of anisogamy or heterogamy, the condition wherein females and males produce gametes of different sizes (this is the case in humans; the human ovum is approximately 20 times larger than the human sperm cell). In contrast, isogamy is the state of gametes from both sexes being the same size and shape, and given arbitrary designators for mating type. The name gamete was introduced by the Austrian biologist Gregor Mendel. Gametes carry half the genetic information of an individual, 1n of each type.

The Gamate appears to be the first of the many handheld consoles released in reaction to the success of Nintendo's Game Boy.

UK magazine advertisement for the Gamate

It was originally released by the Taiwanese game company Bit Corporation in conjunction with local distributors around the world, such as Alston Research in the USA, the joystick makerCheetah Marketing in the United Kingdom, and toy company GIG in Italy.[1]Bit Corp. ceased operating in 1992[2] but UMC and its subsidiary Funtechcontinued to produce gamete hardware and software.

 Definition: Gametes are reproductive cells that unite during sexual reproduction to form a new cell called a zygote. In humans, male gametes are sperm and female gametes are ova (eggs). Sperm are motile and have a long, tail-like projection called a flagellum. Ova however, are non-motile and relatively large in comparison to the male gamete.

A reproductive cell having the haploid number of chromosomes, especially a mature sperm or egg capable of fusing with a gamete of the opposite reproductive part to produce the fertilized egg. Gametes are also referred to as reproductive cells. To be a gamete, the cell must contain half the chromosomes of a somatic cell. Sperm cells and the ovum are good examples.

A gamete is a reproductive cell which carries the genetic information and is produced by the male and the female reproductive organs. The male reproductive organ gives rise to the male gamete and the female reproductive organ gives rise to the female gamete. The male and the female gametes fuse to form the zygote that develops into a new organism.

a male or female gametes are those are reponsible for the genes.male gamete=sperm, female gamete=ovule

Gametes are reproductive cells that fuse togeather during sexual reproduction.the male gamete is the sperm and the female gamete is the ova .

hope this ans helps!!
