HideShow resource information

·         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)
