Clarifying the Terms Synapsis & Bivalent

In Meiosis 1, one of the confusing terms would be these two. Here is the simple diagram to clarify them all:

Synapsis is the process of pairing the homologous chromosomes (same chromosomes, different sources). Memorizing tips: Synapsis = Searching for each other

Bivalent (or tetrad) is the pair of homologous chromosomes. Memorizing tips: Bivalent = Bersama Selamanya / Best couple ever

Now you know :-)
