own eyes how the cells move, where they move to, and how the cell splits through cytokenesis through the actual event, and not through diagrams out of a textbook. We also saw the homologous pairs of chromosomes that were pulled apart, and if you piece together the pictures of the cells going through each phase, you can see how a parent cell divides into two daughter cells . I predict that if mitosis didn’t happen fully occur in autosomes, and chromosomes didn’t divide, the new cell would be severely deformed, because one daughter cell would have no chromosomes, and the other would have twice as many, meaning that every chromosome pair would be deformed with cuatrosomy, resulting in severe consequence. Similarly, if meiosis didn’t split chromosomes in meiosis II, sex cells would not only be twice as diploid, they would combine with another sex cell and produce a zygote with 4 times as many chromosomes than usual. In the field of biology and other types of sciences, when studying the division of autosomes and sex cells, it is important to know these stages of cell division, regardless of the rate of reproduction of a cell, and this lab was a fantastic visual way to learn this.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
