1.compare and contrast meiosis and mitosis
Mitosis can prouduce new complete individuals in a process called ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION. Bacteria cells often do this by halving themselves. Some plants also reproduce a sexually by making new plantlets attached to the parent plant, which then split

off and grow on their own. Unlike in mitosis, in meiosos there are 2 cell divisions instead of 1 (halving). A different kind of cell division (meiosos) is needed to produce haploid gametes (this means having 1 set of chromosomes). Meiosis also starts

with DNA replication, followed by the 2 divisions. The 1st division.seperates 2 sets of chromosomes and the 2nd seperates the copies of each chromosome. This = 4 haploid daughter cells, each containing 1 set of gametes
