Mitosis and Meiosis MCAT Biology Cheat Sheet Study Guide
When it comes to cellular reproduction/division on the MCAT you must be very familiar with Mitosis and Meiosis. This includes what occurs in each of the phases, the products of each pathway, and the key differences between mitosis and meiosis.
Compare Mitosis and Meiosis: Number of Daughter Cells, Genetic Diversity, Phases, and Chromosomes Behavior
|Process||Number of Daughter Cells||Genetic Diversity||Phases||Chromosomes Behavior|
|Mitosis||2||None||Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase||Condense, align at center, pulled apart, decondense|
|Meiosis||4||High||Meiosis I, Meiosis II||Pair up and exchange genetic material, divide again|
