SCI/230 WK 3 Checkpoint: Mitosis and Meiosis The method which a cell splits its present genome into two duplicate halves is known as Mitosis. The procedure that typically trailed mitosis is cytokinesis this at that splits the cell membrane and cytoplasm. The outcomes are two matching cells with the same distribution of cellular components and organelles. Mitosis and cytokinesis united can be distinct as the mitotic stage of the cell cycle. Through mitosis, the original cell's genome splits into two “daughter cells” and this genome is made up of chromosomes, elements of DNA that consist of genetic material which is significant for a cell to operate correctly. Layman’s terms state, “Mitosis is the process in which genetics occur and are assigned.” Through

Unformatted text preview: mitosis, the original ( or parent) cell's genome splits into two “daughter cells” then the genome is made up of chromosomes, units of DNA that have genetic info which is vital for a cell to work accurately. Mitosis merely transpires in eukaryotic “(animal, plant, fungi, and protests)” cells. In organisms that are multicellular, the somatic cells experience mitosis however germ cells (these develop into sperm in men or ova in women) split by a method known as meiosis. Meiosis is associated with Mitosis. Meiosis is the procedure that permits individual diploid cell to divide in a manner that generates haploid cells in eukaryotes. Reproduction is reliant on meiosis. It happens in most eukaryotes as well as single-celled organisms....
