The process of meiosis is a form of cell division that produces reproductive cells, also known as gametes. This process involves two successive cell divisions that produce half the number chromosomes in the new cells. More »

Meiosis is the process in which cells divide to produce sex cells. Meiosis takes a single cell and divides it into four different cells with half of the necessary chromosomes for human development. Meiosis creates both e... More »

During meiosis, a cell divides into four daughter cells called gametes that are used during sexual reproduction. A cell grows larger during interphase, then goes through multiple other steps, such as prophase and metapha... More »
