meiosis & mitosis


anaphase stage of meiotie or mitotie cell division in which the chromosomes move away from one to another to opposite poles of the spindle
asexual reproduction type of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single organism does not involve the fusion of gametes and almost never changes the number of chromosomes
cell cycle series of events that lead to division and duplication of its DNA
cell division process which a parent cell divides into 2 or more daughter cells
centromere part of chromosome that links sister chromatids or a dyad
chromosome thread-like structures located inside the nucleus of cells
crossing over exchange of genetic material between homologous chromosomes that results in recombinant chromosomes
cytokinesis physical process of cell division
interphase phase of cell cycle which a typical cell spends most of its life
metaphase second phase of mitosis, process that separates duplicated genetic material
mitosis nuclear division plus cytokinesis produces two identical daughter cells during prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase
prophase stage of mitosis which chromatin condenses into double rod-shaped structures
sexual reproduction where 2 morphological distant cells called gametes fuse together
telophase final phase where chromatids or chromosomes move to opposite ends
