Haploid cells


In plants this is the cell the gametophyte makes that combines with another cell to make a sporophyte

In animals this is the cell that has half the DNA of one parent and half the DNA of another. The cell splits after recombination so that it has the normal amount of chromosomes for the animal, half of the amount they had from having both parent cells chromosomes.

TL,DR : A genetically distinct cell with half the chromosomes of the cell it split from
