Hi, I did Heredity last year but I missed a lot of topics...luckily there wasn't much on them and I had a lot on my paper, but I still can't tell the difference between mitosis and meiosis....Ehehe... Help?
In mitosis, each pair of identical sister chromatids, that is each X is split and goes to each side, after which the cell splits. In meiosis I, each homologous pair, that is two Xs, one from the father and one from the mother, lines up, and then one X from each homologous pair goes to each end and the cell splits. Then each daughter cell undergoes meiosis II in which now the 23 Xs line up, and they are split, and each sister chromatid goes to opposite sides of the cell after which the cell splits
Hope this helps
