Summary

Independent assortment and crossing over during meiosis result in genetic diversity. Independent assortment produces unique
combinations of parental chromosomes. Crossing over between homologous chromosomes creates a patchwork of genes from both
parents. Genetic linkage describes genes that are close together and tend to be inherited as a unit.
