Gametogenesis = Spermatogenesis + Oogenesis. The sequential process through which gametes are produced from the primordial germ cells in gonads is called gametogenesis. It is of two types –

(i) Spermatogenesis: The process by which sperms (n) developed from the primordial germ calls (2n) of testis is known as spermatogenesis.

(ii) Oogenesis: The process by which eggs or ova (n) developed from the primordial germ cells (2n) of the ovary is known as oogenesis.
