The end result of mitosis is two identical daughter cells. These daughter cells are also identical to the parent cell. Mitosis is essential for growth and repair in living organisms. More »

In human cell mitosis, each daughter cell will have the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell, which is 46 chromosomes. If the parent cell is diploid, it has two sets of chromosomes, or a total of 46. If it is ha... More »

The end products of meiosis are gametes, which are cells with half the chromosome amount of normal cells. These genes are the same as ones found in the parent cells, but they have a different arrangement because they hav... More »

Mitosis produces two identical daughter cells. The resulting cells not only look alike, they also carry the exactly the same genetic information. Mitosis consists of several phases and can only happen if certain factors ... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

The division of a parent cell into two identical daughter cells does not occur during any of the phases of mitosis. Rather, this physical separation occurs during cytokinesis, a process that takes place right after mitos... More »

Plant cells reproduce through mitosis—a form of cell division that causes the cell to split itself into two identical daughter cells. The plant itself reproduces through meiosis, which is another form of cell division th... More »

The two main differences in mitosis and meiosis are that meiosis involves only one cell division, not two, and meiosis results in the production of germ cells or cells that produce gametes. In mitosis, one round yields t... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
