Yang You Assignment 2 While both clips did an excellent job on explaining how Meiosis and Mitosis divide, the PBS.org flash interprets the idea more thoroughly and clearly. In the McGraw-Hill flash, they have a great explanation on crossover, such as when and how genetic information between the chromosome pairs got mixed. Moreover, the animation in McGraw-Hill provided did address the differences between the meiosis and mitosis clearly. For example, the animation shows that in the last stage, meiosis continues to divide, which results in four daughter cells with half the number of chromosome, while mitosis just complete one division therefore there is no change in the number of chromosomes. The PBS.org flash has a relatively similar explanation on the differences but in a more comprehensive way, especially in terms of the mitosis. The animation

Unformatted text preview: shows me that through the metaphase, mitosis and meiosis have different ways to line up the chromosomes, as meiosis places the chromosome pairs on two sides. In addition, during the anaphase of mitosis, the fibers pull the chromatids to the opposite side while in meiosis; there is no separation as they do in mitosis. In all, both animations gave me a better understanding on the differences between meiosis and mitosis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
