type of asexual reproduction; common in bacteria; cell splits into 2 new cells of equal size that are genetically the same
type of asexual reproduction; common in hydra and yeast; minature version of parent grows genetically the same and separates
cell division that takes place in eukaryotic cells; chromosome number stays same; ex: 2n -- 2n; think "toes" since toes are part of your body and mitosis is reproduction of body cells
process that leads to formation of genetically different gametes (sex cells like sperm and egg); crossing over happens; chromosome number reduced by half; ex: 2n -- n
process where sperm and egg unite during sexual reproduction and form a zygote; ex: n + n = 2n
any cell that IS NOT a sex cell; ex: skin cell; hair cell; muscle cell; bone cell; wing cell
also called gametes; only have single set (n) of chromosomes; used in sexual reproduction during fertilization to form a zygote
