PICKERINGTON -- Learning a difficult subject like cell biology can be challenging. Morehouse College student (and Pickerington North graduate) Julien Turner made a rap video to help him learn the difference between meiosis and mitosis. Set to the tune ...

Meiosis and Fertilisation

Amen - France

Sex is a complicated way for an organism to reproduce itself. What benefit does it have, compared to simple cell division? The answer lies in the complex process of cell replication known as meiosis, and the way it works holds one of the keys to evolution.

In this discussion, we limit ourselves to the human genome, which has forty six chromosomes, in twenty two pairs, the autosomes, plus two more: either two X chromosomes or an X and a Y.

Most people will have seen a picture similar to the one above, where an extract of the separated chromosomes has been photographed, and the images placed in order . It is only possible to do this during the final stages of cell division. This way of displaying and representing a particular sample of DNA is known as its karyotype.

Mitosis doesn't do a lot of work than meiosis, But it's a special factor that Biologist can't even resist. The process is dived into four general stages. A process that will last for the ages. The four general stages are considered phases, Involving prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. The Mitosis process begins with interphase, This is when cell divisions are growing in such a rapid pace. This is the place where everything starts, A sim

Meiosis: Introduction - BioCoach Activity
United States

BioCoach Activity will help you review meiosis, the two successive divisions of a diploid cell of a sexually reproducing organism that result in four haploid progeny cells, each with half the genetic material of the original cell. You will find information about the process of meiosis, and the relevance of meiosis to genetics. Animations show the process of meiosis in a dynamic way. You can test your understanding of meiosis by using the Se
