Biology, cell division, mitosis, meiosis - IGCSE | IBDP | DSE | GCE | IAL | AP Biology
There are two different types of cell division: mitosis and meiosis.
In this article, we are going to take a look at how these two cell division methods are different from each other.
Sometimes, organisms need to produce new cells for:
How mitosis happens:
* One important terminology to note : Haploid / Diploid *
Meiosis is the cell division to produce gametes. After meiosis, 4 genetically different cells are produced. The produced gametes are haploid (contain 1 set of chromosomes).
How meiosis happens:
