Fertilization is referred to as the fusion of sperm and ovum to form a single nucleus. The resultant cell formed after fertilization is called a zygote. When a sperm penetrates and fertilizes an egg, genetic information is transferred. The 23 chromosomes from the sperm pair combine with 23 chromosomes in the egg, forming a 46-chromosomal cell called a zygote. It is the process through which a woman becomes pregnant.
