  • Meiosis
    • Meiosis-The division of cell to create four haploid cells that are genetically different.
    • Uses of Meiosis
      • Meiosis happens only in gametes (testes and ovaries).
      • Sexual reproduction-to make gametes (eggs and sperms)
    • Stages of Meiosis
      • 1) The chromosomesare copied but stay attached.
        • 2) Similar  chromosomespair up. Sections of DNA get swapped.
          • 3)The cell splits into two with a full chromosome pair.
            • 4)The cells split up again meaning that four cells have been made.
              • 5)Four new cells have been produced with a single set of chromosomes.
