    Hi Could someone please give me a few pointers on what I would write if this came up as an essay?

    I was thinking genetic variation?
    Here are some ideas to think about:

    The fusion of the gametes, the random cross overs that occur in meiosis.

    In fact meiosis itself leads to variation - which mixture of genetics end up in each cell.

    There is the two parents' gametes coming together - totally random (which gametes fuse).

    Think about the mutations that might occur in the DNA.

    Here are a couple of ideas to get you started. Hope it helps
