The prep stage for mitosis.
Gap 1: Cell growth (All organelles & cytoplasm double in number)
Synthesis: DNA replication (DNA doubles)
Gap 2: Prep for mitosis (All structures associated with mitosis double)
-Nuclear membrane disappears.
-Chromosomes shorten and thicken to become visible.

Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Cytokinesis
Pneumonic Device: I Passed My Anatomy Test Completely
Small cells produces and discarded due to too little cytoplasm during formation of female gamete
Stages of Meiosis
-NO INTERPHASE 2 (No 2nd DNA replication)
Distinguish between Mitosis & Meiosis
Mitosis: 1 division, creates 2 cells identical to the original (parent) cell with 46 chromosomes in humans, creates body (somatic) cells
Meiosis: 2 divisions, creates 4 cells with half the genetic information as the original (parent) cell with 23 chromosomes, creates reproductive cells (gametes: egg & sperm)
