Khaleed Alston October 23, 2007 Dr. Sharif BIO 111L Mitosis lab Eukaryotic cells replicate though the processes of meiosis and mitosis. Meiosis is essential for sexual reproduction and therefore occurs in all eukaryotes (including single- celled organisms) that reproduce sexually. In this process one haploid gamete is taken from each parent to from one diploid zygote. A cell going through mitosis encounters 8 different phases; Prophase I, Anaphase I, Telophase I, Prophase I, Metaphase II, Anaphase II, and Telophase II (Wiley, 2006). Mitosis is the process by which a cell duplicates its genetic information (DNA). By doing this, the cell replicates its genetic material to form two daughter cells. Similar meiosis, mitosis contains 4 essential steps: interphase, prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase (Nanninga, 2001). There is one fundamental difference between mitosis and meiosis, the results of replication. In mitosis the chromosomes double to form two identical daughter cells,
