How is meiosis different from mitosis?
Meiosis is the production of sperm and egg cells. These cells are “Gamete” or “Sex” cells. Each cell has to go through the division process twice in order for the cell to end up with half the number of chromosomes. The cells pass on genetic information to the offspring. This is a form of “Sexual” reproduction, where one organism or cells reproduces by crossing with another organism or cell. Types of organisms that reproduce sexually are; plants, animals, and insects.
