Assignment 2 (1) An organism has a haploid number of 4. At the end of meiosis prophase I how many chromatids will be visible? Explain (2 points) An organism has n=4 cell. Which have 8 chromatids. But at the end of the meiosis there are 2n cells that is why n=8. Which have 16 chromatids. So, at the end of meiosis prophase 1, there are16 visible chromatids. Each double stranded chromosome has two sister chromatids. (2) The end products of both mitosis and meiosis is a set of chromosomes. Explain the differences between the two sets. (2 points) Mitosis and meiosis both start from a diploid parent cell with four chromosomes. 1. During mitosis chromosomes duplicated, individual chromosomes line up and at the end of the mitosis it results in two genetically identical diploid cells. Chromosomes simply replicated from the original cells and that is why mitosis have same number of chromosomes at the end product as it was start with. In other words, at the end mitosis have diploid cell with four chromosomes. This resulted cells are used for growth, tissue repair and asexual reproduction.
