My genetic interests persist in the area of the control of human development. Something must be fundamentally flawed with a reproductive system that allows only 20% of embryos to implant, even in younger couples. Why are so many human spermatozoa immotile or formed abnormally, and why do up to one-half of embryos carry chromosomal anomalies?
Robert Edwards

WHAT DOES SPERMATOZOA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

spermatozoa

Spermatozoon

A spermatozoon is a motile sperm cell, or moving form of the haploid cell that is the male gamete. A spermatozoon joins an ovum to form a zygote. Sperm cells contribute approximately half of the nuclear genetic information to the diploid offspring. In mammals, the sex of the offspring is determined by the sperm cell: a spermatozoon bearing a Y chromosome will lead to a male offspring, while one bearing an X chromosome will lead to a female offspring. Sperm cells were first observed by Anton van Leeuwenhoek in 1677.
