Name: Karina Santana Section: NET1K Instructor: Medialdea and Forest Lab 5: Mitosis and Meiosis (15 points) Activity 1: Inquiry Questions (0.5 each) 1. If an organism has a diploid chromosome number of 20 and goes through mitosis, how many chromosomes will be present in each of the daughter cells? 20 2. What would happen if mitosis could no longer occur in an adult plant or animal? Why would this be a problem? If mitosis could no longer occur in an adult plant or animal than there would be no daughter cells being produced. This would be a problem because growth in general will stop. In the mitosis process cells are duplicated and without it there are abnormalities. Also, since all of our cells are identical to one another this allows them to work together as a whole, with out duplication the plant or animal body might not work like it should. Activity 2: Data Collection and Inquiry Questions 1. Based on Table 7-1 and Figure 7-5, write the name of the step where each of these events is occurring on the blank line ahead of each event: (0.25 each/1.5 total) __ TELOPHASE A new cell wall starts to form __ PROPHASE First appearance of individual chromosomes
