    Mitosis July 21, 2005 Summary In the lab exercise related to Mitosis, we view various slides containing cells undergoing Mitosis. We viewed 2 different specimens; a slide of an onion root tip and a slide of Ascaris eggs. Some of the cells are at different phases of Mitosis (Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase). We viewed it under HPO and LPO. Chromosomes were visible in both the LPO and the HPO although the spindle fibers were not very visible because of limitations in the

    has two possible fates: the first one is to enter mitosis to produce two diploid genetically identical daughter cells, the second one is to enter meiosis to produce four haploid genetically non-identical daughter cells (Cooper, 2000). There are many similarities and differences between the two that will be covered in this essay. Mitosis is a vital process to ensure the growth and development of an organism and this lasts for about an hour. Mitosis is involved in wound healing and replacing lost cells

    The Process of Mitosis

    • 515 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Process of Mitosis Mitosis is the term used to describe cell division for replication. The product at the end of mitosis is two daughter cells both genetically identical to the original (parent) cell. This process (mitosis) is used for growth and repair within an organism (and also for asexual reproduction). There are five main stages to mitosis, called Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase. Although the process has been divided up into these stages the process of mitosis is actually

    Sarah Hill 0583028 Lab #2 Cells, Chromosomes, and Mitosis Part 1: 1. What are the various phases that make up the cell cycle? The period of time before mitotic replication is known as interphase (Campbell et al., 2008, pp 303). The next phase is prophase, where chromosomes divide and copy (Campbell et al., 2008, pp 303). In metaphase, chromosomes move to the centre of the cell and arrange single-file (Campbell et al., 2008, pp 303). During anaphase, sister chromatids break apart and move

    happen by either mitosis or meiosis, depending on what type of cell is invovled. Mitosis is a process by which a cell divides to form two daughter cells. They each have the same exact number and kind of chromosomes as the parent cell. Meiosis occurs in the primary sex cells leading to the formation of viable egg and sperm cells. They reduce the number of chromosomes to half in each gamete so that when they are getting furtilized, the species chromosome number is kept even. Mitosis happens in the reproduction

    The aim of the experiment is to better understand the process and stages of mitosis. Prepare specimens of onion root in order to visualize all stages of mitosis, and estimate the relative length of each stage of mitosis. In this experiment, we cut 2 onion roots tips about 1 cm long and placed it into a micro-tube with HCl. Then, the tube was placed in a water bath for 20 minutes to incubate the roots. After 20 minutes, we removed the HCl from the tube and rinsed 3 times the root tips with water

    Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis with reference to i. Chromosomesii. Biological significance i. Chromosomes ii. Biological significance Modern cell theory states that all cells are derived from other cells. This means cells must have a way of copying themselves. 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

    the processes of mitosis and meiosis that occur during the M phase of the cell cycle, including their similarities and differences. The cell cycle is an undeniably fundamental part in the journey of a cell. Without it there would be no cell reproduction or growth. Through the process of mitosis and also meiosis which will be shortly discussed about, it will come to be known exactly just how important it actually is. Mitosis is described as a type of cell division. Through mitosis new cells are made

    known as nuclear division and cytokinesis. There are two types within nuclear division. Those two types being mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis and meiosis play a very important role in the everyday life as well. Mitosis is the asexual reproduction in which two cells divide in two in order to make duplicate cells. The cells have an equal number of chromosomes which will result in diploid cells. Mitosis is genetically identical and occurs in all living

    Meiosis Vs. Mitosis

    More than one celled organisms grow by way of mitosis and the cytoplasmic division of body cells. On the other hand, meiosis occurs only in germ cells, which are put aside for the formation of gametes (sperm and egg). Reproduction by meiosis allows for species survival and it increases genetic variability. The process, during which the germ cells are generated is called meiosis. It represents nature's solution to the problem of chromosome doubling that would occur, if two diploid cells, i.e. two
