Differences of Meiosis and Mitosis
Created by Falisity Smith and Candice Marotta.
Differences of Meiosis.
- Meiosis is a two-stage form of cell division used only in the sex organs to produce gametes.
- Meiosis differs from Mitosis in that during prophase genetic material may be exchanged between the chromatids.
- Meiosis is sexual reproduction.
- Meiosis occurs in humans, animals, plants, and fungi.
- Meiosis goes through 2 divisions.
Differences of Mitosis.
- Mitosis is the process by which most body cells reproduce themselves.
- Mitosis occurs in all organsims.
- Mitosis is asexual reproduction.
- Mitosis only goes through one cell division, and is divided into four stages: Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. Cell division ends at Cytokinesis.
- Every cell is genetically identical in Mitosis.
