lol i passed biology with 50% fucking meiosis and mitosis shit.. sister chromatids!
Mitosis made my toes and meiosis made me.
My biology teacher told us that so we could remember what it's supposed to do
Mitosis vs Meiosis
Produces body cells(Somatic cells)
Produces sex cells(Gametes)
Daughter cells diploid(2N)
Daughter cells haploid(N)
Two daughter cells produced
Four daughter cells produced
In metaphase chromosomes line up singley
In metaphase I chromosomes line up as homologous pairs(synapsis)
The two double chromosomes are called a tetrad when they are lined up side-by-side.
Crossing over occurs during the formation of the tetrad
One nuclear division
Two nuclear divisions
Produces cells for growth and repair
Produces cells for sexual reproduction
Daughter cells have two sets of chromosomes(pairs)
Daughter cells have only one member of each pair of chromosomes
Daughter cells are genetically identical to the parent cell
Daughter cells have one-half of the genes from the parent cell
Insures that all daughter cells are genetically identical
Generates genetic diversity through crossing over and ramdom seperation of homologous pairs of chromosomes
hope that helps this shit helped me the night before my test and literally scored 100 % (with ex) haha but still
