MEIOSIS
the chromosome number is HALVED and each cell is genetically DIFFERENT, - GAMETES are produced by MEIOSIS
1 of 5
MITOSIS
New cells for growth are produced. These new cells are genetically IDENTICAL.
2 of 5
Growth can be measured by:
A change in wet mass, dry mass or length.
3 of 5
UNDIFFERENTIATED cells = STEM cells
Can develop into different cells, tissues and organs.
