Telophase-The two new nuclei assume their normal structure, and cell division is completed, producing two new daughter cells. Meiosis o Meiosis results in the formation of gametes (sperm cells or oocytes). Gametes have half the number (haploid number) of chromosomes that other (diploid) body cells do. o There are two cell divisions in meiosis. Each division has four stages similar to those in mitosis. o During meiosis the processes of crossing over within tetrads and random distribution of chromosomes increase genetic variability.
