· Chromosomes are found in pairs in body cells;
· Body cells divide by mitosis.
· Chromosomes contain genetic information on genes
· During mitosis copies of the genetic material are made then the cell divides once to form two genetically identical body cells
· Mitosis occurs during growth or to produce replacement cells.
· Cells of the offspring produced by asexual reproduction are produced by mitosis from the parental cells. They contain the same alleles as the parents
· Sex cells (gametes)…
