What Happens During Segregation?

When gametes are formed, a pair of alleles present on the homologous chromosomes are separated or segregated from each other, hence each allele enters into a single gamete. Alleles of one gene do not affect the segregation of other alleles of a different gene present on another chromosome. As each of the gametes has only one allele now after separation, they are said to be pure for a single trait only.
