Table Of Contents: Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis
1. Mitosis and Meiosis Overview
Both mitosis and meiosis are processes that result in the production of new cells.
2. Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis
Mitosis is a process that is responsible for an organism's growth and development as well as replacement of worn out body cells. Meiosis is a process for making sex cells.
3. Number of Chromosomes
Mitosis forms cells that have the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell, while meiosis reduces the chromosome number by half.
4. Daughter Cells and Sex Cells
Mitosis results in daughter cells that are genetically identical, and meiosis results in sex cells that are genetically different.
