Males were stripped as described above to obtain 0. Although haploid selection is well established in plants, current dogma assumes that in animals, intact fertile sperm within a single ejaculate are equivalent at siring viable offspring.

Data Dator- och konsolspel Spel: To test for a genetic difference between haploid sperm phenotypes, we performed in vitro assays to separate sperm within an ejaculate according to their ability to survive and cover a certain distance throughout their motile phase.
But there's already a shortage in sperm, with too few men stepping forward to meet the demands of couples who need help getting pregnant.
