That is because the daughter cell has identical genetic information as the mother cell. As you can see, DNA is a very important part of life.
This is cell division; two types of cell division are Meiosis and Mitosis. The comparison will be between Meiosis 1 and Mitosis, because Meiosis 2 is much the same as Mitosis. Dividing cells have a regular pattern of events, known as the cell cycle. This cycle may be divided into two basic parts; The Interphase and the actual division (Meiosis / Mitosis). Interphase is when the cell is not dividing but duplicating its DNA and organelles.
This helps to create genetic diversity. Anaphase 1 is where the bivalents separate and the homologous chromosomes move to opposite poles of the cell. Telophase 1 is where the nuclear envelope reforms after disintegrating in prophase 1. Then cytokinesis is where the cell divides to create two new cells which are haploid (GENIE, 2010). The next main stage is meiosis 2 and this is where each chromosome is split into 2 sister chromatids.
Accordingly are the cells haploid and zygotes and the body cells that stem from them are diploid, because they contain two equal sets of chromosomes, one from the mother and one from the father. They exist, especially in plants. At the beginning of meiosis, in prophase 1 the plate breaksdown and chromosomes become visible as in mitosis (1). The chromosomes have replicated but individual chromatids are not visible. Instead of lining up on a metaphase, as in mitosis, chromosomes come together in pairs (2).
In eukaryotic organisms, there are two types of cellular divisions that take place within the body. The first type being mitosis and the second being meiosis. Mitosis is what happens when the cell’s nucleus divides into two identical daughter cells. Meiosis is the process that creates four daughter cells that each has half the number of the original chromosomes as the original parent cell. While the products for these processes are different there are some similar aspects, that each has in common with one another.
Mitosis and meiosis both occur in the M phase of the cell cycle, and are the methods of cell division to form somatic cells and gametes, respectively. They are both complex processes that form more than one daughter cell from one parent cell, and they have many similarities and differences, which will be discussed in this essay. Mitosis is the type of cell division that occurs in all somatic cells. Its purpose is to produce two genetically identical daughter cells. Before the process of mitosis starts, DNA replicates and the resulting sister chromatids are held together by cohesin proteins.
The cell gathers in the middle and forms two single daughter cells that contain a full set of chromosomes. The process is known as cytokinesis. Meiosis is generally also described a division within a cell and is also sometimes called “Reduction Division”. Through Meiosis both the male and female gamete is produced. A gamete is a sexual reproductive cell which has matured whose nucleus is able to combine with another cell which in turn forms a new organism.
The chromosomes are tightly condensed and align at the metaphase plate. The third phase is called anaphase. The spindle fibers connect the sister chromati... ... middle of paper ... .... No matter what species you are, you must reproduce by Mitosis, Meiosis, or both. Mitosis is an asexual reproduction process while Meiosis is a sexual reproduction process. They both have similar phase events but the major difference between them is the presences of one or two parent cells in the production of daughter cells.
These are divided between the first time the cell divides (meiosis I) and the second time it divides (meiosis II): Meiosis I 1. Interphase: First, the DNA in the cell is copied resulting in two identical full sets of chromosomes.

It consists of nitrogenous bases, which include ... ... middle of paper ... ...elope reforms around each chromosome set, the spindle fibres disappear, and the nucleolus reforms as it was in the parent cell. (6) Finally, in telophase a cleavage furrow becomes evident and the cytoplasm of the cell divides in a process called cytokinesis, resulting in two separate and independent but identical diploid daughter cells. Meiosis occurs in two successive nuclear divisions: meiosis I and meiosis II.
