During meiosis II, the chromosomes condense and become attached to a new spindle apparatus (prophase II). They then move to positions in the equatorial plane of the cell (metaphase II), and their centromeres split to allow the constituent sister chromatids to move to opposite poles (anaphase II), a phenomenon called chromatid disjunction. 277 more words

Today, we reviewed chromosomes and sexual vs. asexual reproduction briefly. We went over the PowerPoint below and previewed vocabulary for the upcoming material. The important terminology was: autosome, somatic, meiosis, mitosis, haploid, diploid, gametes, chromosome, homologous chromosome, sister chromatids, and fertilization.
1. How does meiosis differ from mitosis? What is the ploidy number of the products in both processes?
Mitosis is a process of asexual reproduction in which the cell divides in two producing a replica, with an equal number of chromosomes in each resulting diploid cell. 665 more words
1.How does meiosis differ from mitosis? What is the ploidy number of the products in both processes?
The main difference between mitosis and meiosis is that mitosis involves the process in which a diploid cell divides into two identical diploid cells. 263 more words
