  • Cell Division
    • Mitosis
      • Copy of chromosomes made
        • Divides into two daughter cells where one of each chromosome goes to each cell
      • Body cells
      • Produces same number of chromosomes as parent cell
      • Diploid number of chromosomes
    • Meiosis
      • For sexual reproduction
      • To make gametes
        • Egg cells (ova)
        • Sperm cells
      • Divides twice without copying chromosomes in between
        • Single set of chromosomes made
      • Before any dividing takes place, a copy of the chromosomes is made
      • Haploid number of chromosomes
    • For growth and repair of an organism
