a. (Gr. diploos, double; eidos, form) having twice the number of chromosomes normally occurring in a germ cell.
Having a normal number of two sets of chromosomes; know as 2N.
A nucleus (or cell) that has two copies of each chromosome.
(dip´ loid) [Gr. diploos: double] • Having a chromosome complement consisting of two copies (homologues) of each chromosome. A diploid individual (or cell) usually arises as a result of the fusion of two gametes, each with just one copy of each chromosome. Thus, the two homologues in each chromosome pair in a diploid cell are of separate origin, one derived from the female parent and one from the male parent.
Cells with two copies of each chromosome.
refers to cells and organisms containing two complete matching sets of chromosomes
The number of chromosomes in most cells except the gametes. In humans, the diploid number is 46.
having two of each kind of chromosome (except for the sex chromosomes). (2n)
having one complete set of normally paired chromosomes, i.e., a normal amount of DNA; diploid cancer cells tend to grow slowly and respond well to hormone therapy; a diploid number of chromosomes would equal 46, a haploid set would equal 23; see also haploid
Humans have twenty-three pairs of chromosomes - the structures that carry the genetic material that codes for the general and specific characteristics of an individual. Roses either have two sets or four sets. Roses having two sets are said to be diploid and those with four sets are said to be tetraploid. When diploid roses are crossed with tetraploid roses, the resulting roses are triploid and are generally not fertile.
A plant with the normal amount of chromosomes.
An organism having two chromosomes of each kind.
having two copies of each chromosome that comprises the genome of a cell/organism.

Having a double set of chromosomes (2n chromosomes) per cell.
A condition in which the chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell exist as pairs, one set being derived from the female parent and the other from the male. In cereals such as barley and rice all the cells except the reproductive cells are diploid. When gametes are formed the diploid number (2n) is reduced by half to the haploid number (n) by meiosis When gametes fuse at fertilization the diploid condition is restored. In modern wheat the situation is more complex because it contains three genomes derived from different ancient diploid ancestors.

a nucleus is dipploid if it contains two copies of each non-redundant gene. In Fungi, it is necessary to distinguish between diploid nuclei and diploid cells. A hypha may contain several haploid nuclei (either identical or from different individuals). Technically, the cell is diploid or polyploid. However, there may be no diploid nuclei.
