  • Mitosis
    • The cell division in a normal body cells produces two identical cells
      • As a result all your body cells have the same chromosones
        • This means they have the same genetic information
    • In asexual reproduction, the cells of the offspring are produced by mitosis from the cells of the parent
      • This is why they contain exactly the same alleles as their parent with no genetic variation
    • How does it work?
      • Before a cell divides it produces new copies of the chromosome in the nucleus
        • Then the cell divides once to form two genetically identical cells.
