Meiosis vs Mitosis
by shannon owens
Meiosis goes through two divisions and Mitosis only goes through one.
Meiosis cells are genetically different and Mitosis cells are genetically the same.
Meiosisis for genetic diversity for sexual reproduction. Mitosis is for growth and repair of cells.
Meiosis chromosomes are reduced by half, and Mitosis chromosomes remain the same.
In Meiosis mixing of chromosomes can occur and in Mitosis it can not occur.
In Meiosis 4 haploid cells are reproduced, but in Mitosis 2 diploid cells are produced.
