In unicellular organisms, division of one cell reproduces the entire organism Multicellular organisms depend on cell division for Development from a fertilized cell Growth Repair Cell division is an integral part of the cell cycle , the life of a cell from formation to its own division

Concept 12.1: Most cell division results in genetically identical daughter cells Most cell division results in daughter cells with identical genetic information, DNA The exception is meiosis, a special type of division that can produce sperm and egg cells

Cellular Organization of Genetic Material All the DNA in a cell constitutes the cell’s genome A genome can consist of a single DNA molecule (common in prokaryotic cells) or a number of DNA molecules (common in eukaryotic cells) DNA molecules in a cell are packaged into chromosomes

Every eukaryotic species has a characteristic number of chromosomes in each cell nucleus Somatic cells (nonreproductive cells) have two sets of chromosomes - Diploid Gametes (reproductive cells: sperm and eggs) have half as many chromosomes- Haploid

Eukaryotic cell division consists of Mitosis , the division of the genetic material in the nucleus Cytokinesis , the division of the cytoplasm
