Haploid cells are cells that have a single set of chromosomes.


A haploid cell has a single set of chromosomes. In eukaryotes, cells are diploid, meaning they have two sets of chromosomes. One set comes from each parent.


In animals, including humans, haploid cells are the sperm and egg cells or the gametes.

Haploid cells are the result of meiosis.
