Mitosis and Meiosis
What's the Difference?
Whats the difference?
-Crossing over cannot occur
-Reproduction of the cell cycle is shorter than Meiosis'
-Do not need a partner
- Occurs in all organisms
-Chromosome number stays the same
-Number of daughter cells produced is 2 diploid cells
-Creates everything other than sex cells.
-Crossing over mixing of chromosome can occur
-Reproduction of the cell cycle is Longer than Mitosis
-Need a partner
-Occurs in Humans, animals, plants, fungi
-Chromosome number is reduced by half
-Number of daughter cells produced is 4 haploid cells
-Creates Sex cells only: female egg cells or male sperm cells.
