Minor nitpick but there is no interphase after meiosis I. It pretty much goes straight to meiosis II.Meiosis also has 2 stages, like (I'm going to use abbreviations because I'm lazy) P1 M1 A1 T1 -(another space here for G1 and stuff again)- P2 M2 A2 T2. Also, meiosis 2 (the second stage) is the same (practically) as mitosis and meiosis DOES NOT occur in gametes. It CREATES gametes. It OCCURS in germ cells.Mitosis occurs in somatic (or body) cells while meiosis occurs in sex cells (or "gametes") only.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?
