  • Meiosis and Mitosis
    • Mitosis
      • A process of asexual reproduction in which the cell divides in two producing a replica, with an equal number of chromosomes in each resulting diploid cell.
      • Cellular Reproduction & general growth and repair of the body
      • Asexual
      • All organisms
      • Genetically identical
      • Crossover of chromosones cannot occur
      • 1 division
      • 2 diploid cells produced
      • Chromosone no. remains the same
    • Meiosis
      • A type of cellular reproduction in which the number of chromosomes are reduced by half through the separation of homologous chromosomes, producing two haploid cells.
      • sexual reproduction
      • Sexual
      • Humans, animals, plants, fungi
      • Genetically different
      • Crossover of chromosones can occur
      • 2 divisions
      • 4 haploid cells produced
      • Chromosone no. reduced by half
