Mitosis and Meiosis

HideShow resource information
what is mitosis ?
is tis the division of a cell nucleaus to produce two cells with genetically identical set of chromosomes
1 of 12
when does mitosis happen?
it happens to produce new cells for growth and repair.
2 of 12
is mitosis asexual or sexual reproduction ?
asexual reproduction
3 of 12
what are the processes of mitosis ?
1)diploid cell with two pairs of chromosomes. 2) each cell replicates itself 3) the cell divided into two 4)each new diploid daughter cell has the same chromosomes as the original cell and the same genes
4 of 12
what is meiosis?
it is a diploid cell that divided twice to produce four haploid cells that contain half the number of chromosomes
5 of 12
what is a diploid cell?
a cell that contrains the full amount of chromosomes
6 of 12
what is a haploid cell ?
haploid only contains one set of chromosomes
7 of 12
what does meiosis produce?
it produces four haploid cells that are genetically different sets of chromosomes

is meiosis sexual or asexual reproduction ?
sexual reproduction
9 of 12
where do you find meiosis happen?
it happens in the gametes (sex cells i.e. sperm and egg)
10 of 12
what the process of meiosis?
1)diploid cell with two pairs of chromosomes. 2) each cell replicates itself 3) chromosomes become pairs and split to opposite ends of the cell 4) the first cell division happens each with 2 pairs of chromosomes
11 of 12
continue of process of meiosis
5) they split again 6)four haploid cells are produced with half the number of chromosomes.
