Mitosis vs. Meiosis

5 differences between Mitosis and Meiosis

Definition of each Mitosis and Meiosis


    Mitosis is a part of the cell cycle in which chromosomes in a cell nucleus are separated into two identical sets of chromosomes, and each set ends up in its own nucleus. VS. A type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes and plant spores.


Meiosis

At the end of Meiosis four daughter cells that have half the number of chromosomes than the original cell are formed

Mitosis

At the end of mitosis has two daughter cells that are identical to the previous cell

Meiosis

Meiosis occurs in most sexual reproduction. To create sperm and egg cells.

Mitosis

Mitosis helps aid in growth,cell replacement, Asexual reproduction, etc.

Meiosis
