All metazoans that reproduce sexually have the ability to form gametes. Both types of gametes, the egg and the sperm, arise from germ cells, undergo a unique program of differentiation, and are destined to unite. The outcome of their union, the zygote, is a cell possessing the tremendous potential to build a new individual that expresses, maintains, and propagates characteristics of the species.The focus of this review is the development of the egg in animals, beginning with the formation of… CONTINUE READING
