INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND INFORMATION: In this lab our objective was to investigate the processes of mitosis and meiosis and how they compare. We used prepared slides of onion root tips to study plant mitosis and to calculate the relative duration of the phases of mitosis. We simulated the stages of meiosis by using chromosome models. We studied crossing over and recombination that occurs in meiosis. Mitosis results in new somatic cells while meiosis results in the formation of either gametes in animals or spores in plants. MATERIALS: See lab packet three for the materials. PROCEDURE: See lab packet three for the procedure. DATA: Raw data from this lab is in the lab packet three, and the table and graphs are on the attached page. ANALYSIS: EXERCISE 3B. 1. There are two phases of meiosis while mitosis only has one phase. The resulting cells in mitosis are diploid while the resulting cells of meiosis

are haploid. The third difference between meiosis and mitosis is that
