1. What are the major differences between mitosis and meiosis?
Why is it necessary to have a meiotic cell division?
Explain the difference between the C value and the n number.
What phase of the cell cycle does DNA replication occur in?
4. Genes and chromosomes behave in similar ways; explain what this means with regard to Mendel's principle of independent assortment.
5. For each of the following, give a brief description:
Here you go :)
Produces: four haploid daughter cells two diploid daughter cells
Genetically: different identical
Function: Growth, Repair, asexual Reproduction Cellular Reproduction (cell division during which the cell nucleus divides)
Creates: Sex cells only Makes everything other than sex cells (Somatic Cells)
Occurs in: Humans, animals, plants all organisms
Meiosis is a special process in cellular division where cells are created containing gene patterns of different types and combinations with 50% of the number of chromosomes of the original cell. Meiosis is used in sexual reproduction of organisms to combine male and female, through the spermazoa and egg, to create a new, singular biological organism.
C-value refers to haploid amount of DNA
n - number of chromosome sets
The S (Synthesis) period is where DNA ...

AP Biology Test Review
We are doing a mitosis and meiosis lab. I need help on these concept questions.
1. Why is it more accurate to call mitosis "nuclear replication" rather than "cellular division"?
2. Explain why the whitefish blastula and onion root tip are selected for a study of mitosis.
3. List three major difference between the events of mitosis and meiosis.
4. Compare mitosis and meiosis with respect to each of the following:
Chromosome number of parent cells
Number of DNA replications
Number of divisions
Number of daughter cells produced
Chromosome number of daughter cells
5. How are Meiosis I and Meiosis II dufferent?
6. How do oogenesis and spermatogenesis differ?
7. Why is meiosis important for sexual reproduction?
