Zygote

Updated: MAY 7, 2015

A zygote is a fertilized egg cell which occurs after the male sperm meets with the female ovum, or egg, during the sexual reproductive process. The zygote stage is the very first stage of the development of the human embryo. The zygote contains all of the DNA information from both parents.
