Terms in this set (15)
a type of cell division that results in four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell, as in the production of gametes and plant spores.
Cell division for all somatic cells. produces 2 daughter cells that are identical copies of parent cell.
Chromosomes become visible; nuclear envelope breaks down; crossing-over occurs.
Paired homologous chromosomes line up across the center of the cell
Homologous chromosomes separate
2 daughter cells are formed, each daughter cell contains only one chromosome of the homologous pair.
a new spindle forms around each of the two haploid cells.
23 chromosomes (2 sister chromatids each) line up in middle
sister chromatids separate
telophase 2 and cytokinesis (meiosis)
4 gametes are produced
(genetics) an organism or cell having only one complete set of chromosomes
(genetics) an organism or cell having two sets of chromosomes or twice the haploid number
Process in which homologous chromosomes exchange portions of their chromatids (alleles) during meiosis.
independent assortment of chromosomes
The random distribution of maternal and paternal chromosomes into gametes during meiosis.
