    There is recombination as dedee correctly states. This occurs through homologous recombination during prophase I and cross overs between homologous chromosomes can take place, resulting in new combinations of alleles on one chromosome. The other is the random assortment of alleles into the daughter cells at metaphase I (where chromosomes line up and divide into each daughter cell). I hope this is clear; for more details there's a good page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meiosis
