A dyad is composed a pair of homologous chromosomes or sister chromatids. It can be found during anaphase 1 of Meiosis at a process called disjunction. The tetrad migrates into opposite poles of the cell as they are divided into two, which are the dyads [1].

During Meiosis II, the process starts with dyads (2 haploid cells) instead of tetrads, which is similar to Mitosis [2].
