Blastomeres are the two daughter cells which are formed by the division of ovum,which is an female gamete.First cleavage division appears in the cytoplasm of the ovum when it gets fertilised by an sperm.This division occurs at right angle to an imaginary axis which runs through the ovum from animal pole to vegetal pole,As this furrow deepens at two poles,this divides the ovum into two daughter cells which are called as blastomeres.

In biology, a blastomere is a type of cell produced by cleavage (cell division) of the zygote after fertilization and is an essential part of blastula formation.

The blastula is a hollow sphere of cells, referred to as blastomeres, surrounding an inner fluid-filled cavity called the blastocoele formed during an early stage of embryonic development in animals.
