Mitosis Vs. Meiosis



In Meiosis, there are homologous chromosome pairs. There are also a total of 4 daughter haploid cells that are produced at the end of Meiosis. Occurs only in animals, plants and fungi. Involves crossing over of chromosomes in prophase I. During anaphase I the sister chromatids move together to the same pole. During anaphase II the sister chromatids are separated to opposite sides. There are several cell divisions.


Mitosis produces 2 daughter diploid cells at the end of Mitosis. Mitosis is used for cellular reproduction and general growth and repairs damaged cells. Prophase is shorter in Mitosis than Meiosis. There is one cell division
