Mitosis and Meiosis

Processes involved in cell replication includes mitosis and meiosis.

Mitosis is a cell division where one cell gives rise to two genetically identical daughter cells. This happens in all body cells except sex cells. Meiosis is a cell division involving gametes that results in four daughter cells with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell.

This video explores the process of mitosis and meiosis and their differences.


Cell replication processes of mitosis and meiosis ensure the continuity and survival of the species. This is achieved through genetic variations as shown in the video below.
