reproductive system

re·pro·duc·tive sys·tem

/ˌrēprəˈdəktiv ˈsistəm/

Noun

The body’s reproductive system is responsible for producing offspring, so that there is continuity of itself. At the basic functional level, the coding for the body is found in specialized proteins called genes, assembled together to make the genetic code. Humans do not reproduce by themselves; there must be a method of intermingling the genetic code of one male and one female human.
