Caption: Crossing over during meiosis. Light microgaph of crossing over between homologous stands of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) during prophase I of meiosis. Crossing over is a natural genetic process that occurs between homologous chromosomes and leads to the switching of genetic material between the chromosomes. This recombination occurs during meiosis (gamete formation) and so increases the genetic variation in a population.
