(oh´ eh jen e sis) [Gr. oon: egg + genesis: source] • Female gametogenesis, leading to production of the egg.
Process of forming female gametes (ova).
The production of oocytes.
The multiplication (by the process of mitosis) of ova, or eggs, in the ovaries of the fetus.

The process in which haploid egg cells (ova) form through meiotic division.
consists of the meiotic cell divisions that lead to the production of ova (eggs) in females.
Formation and maturation of oocytes in the ovary.
development of ova
oo-GEN-eh-sis The differentiation of an egg cell from a diploid oogonium, to a primary oocyte, to two haploid secondary oocytes, to ootids, and finally, after fertilization, to a mature ovum. 204
( oo-oh- jen-eh-sis) The process in the ovary that results in the production of female gametes.
The production of ova. The development of a diploid cell into a haploid ovum or egg cell. PICTURE
The process of the development of female reproductive cells whereby the diploid chromosome number is reduced to the haploid.
the process by which the ovum is formed in preparation for its development
Gr. oon - an egg; Gr. genesis - origin, descent] The process in females whereby a mature ovum is formed from an oocyte.
The process of ovum formation in female animals.
The process by which immature germ cell mature into oocytes within the somatic gonad (for more detail see Greenstein, 2005).
