Chromosomes appear in pairs. They will contain two genes one being maternal and one paternal. Chromosome Replication is necessary for the gene to divide evenly. Each chromosome is replicated. This appears during the interphase of the cell cycle. Mitotic division may occur in almost any living cell of an organism. Meiosis is restricted to cells that form eggs and sperm, otherwise known as gametes. From what I understand is all cells need to regenerate. But in order for a plant or animal to produce offspring their Chromosome will need to replicate. This replication process because the Chromosome forms eggs and sperm is called meiosis. Through this process the Chromosomes will produce four Chromosomes or two pairs. The extra two are for the new organism or offspring. Mitotic division only reproduces its self

Unformatted text preview: for the organism it is in. They do not create organisms for offspring. Mitosis division creates two identical daughter cells. I guess this process of cell division is the way our bodys produce offspring, or repair the already damaged cells. This process keeps the body healing and reproducing new cells no matter if they are skin, blood or cells to form offspring. I guess this is the bodys way of healing and reproducing. It is known that all chromosomes consist of the maternal cells and the paternal cells we need these to form the new cells. In the process of forming these new cells the nucleus brakes down. The nucleus does not reform until the cytokinesis stage or the final stage. In this stage there will be a nucleus for every new chromosome....
