Importance of mitosis
Mitosis is replicative cell division involving one nuclear division to form two genetically identical daughter cells. The consequence of mitotic division is:
1. There will be no variation in genetic information.
2. There will be no variation in chromosome number due to the semi-conservative replication of DNA and equal distribution of DNA.
3. The cell divide once and two identical daughter cells are formed.
Growth: The number of cells within an organism increases by ...
This solution clearly discusses the purpose of the processes of mitosis and meiosis.
