a complete set of chromosomes.
A diploid cell describes a cell with:
diploids have 2 times as many chromosomes as haploids.
The difference between diploids and haploids is:
Interphase
What is the longest stage in the cell cycle?
prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase
The order of the steps of mitosis are:
contain a full set of chromosomes, are identical and are smaller than the parent cell (until they grow during Interphase)
After cytokinesis, the daughter cells:
produces 4 sex cells.
During meiosis, a cell:
23
A human has 46 chromosomes. How many chromosomes are in a human sex cell? (gamete)
chromosomes
Made up of protein and DNA, __ contain genetic information within a cell.
haploid
In a human cell, a ________________cell contains 23 chromosomes.
interphase
During ____________________ the cell grows, develops, and copies its chromosomes.
mitosis
____________________ is the part the cell cycle that produces 2 daughter cells
meiosis
____________________ is the process of cell division that produces sex cells with half the number of chromosomes.
metaphase
During this phase of mitosis the chromosomes line up
anaphase
During this phase of mitosis the chromosomes separate
telephase
During this phase of mitosis the nuclear membrane appears and and 2 cells begin to form
diploid
(genetics) an organism or cell having two sets of chromosomes or twice the haploid number
Sex cell
gamete
