mitosis and meiosis

Mitosis-

Interphase- growth, synthesis and growth

Prophase- chromosomes duplicate and pair up

Metaphase- centrioles line up at opposite ends of the cell and form spindle fibres which get attached to the chromosomes. Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell

Anaphase- Spindle fibres pull the chromosome sisters apart.

Telophase- the cell splits in half and forms 2 separate cells.

Meiosis

Meiosis-

Interphase- Growth, sysnthesis, growth

Prophase- Chromosomes duplicate and pair up

Metaphase- Centrioles line up at opposite sides of the cell and form spindle fibres which attach to the chromosomes. Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell.

Anaphase- The spindle fibres pull away 2 chromosomes. 2 chromosomes go into 1 cell and 2 go into the other

Telophase- The cell splits into 2 cells

Metaphase II- The cells in the 2 cells line up down the middle

Anaphase II- The spindle fibres pull apart the sister chromosomes

Telophase II- Each cell splits and 4 cells are formed.
