Mitosis Cell division
All complex organisms originated from a single fertilized egg. Every cell in your body began here, then through cell division the numbers are increased. Cells then specialize and change into their various roles.
Mitosis Mitosis is the process by which new body cell are produced for: –Growth –Replacing damaged or old cells. This is a complex process requiring different stages
2 daughter cells identical to original Parent cell Chromosomes are copied and double in number Chromosomes now split
Mitosis All daughter cells contain the same genetic information from the original parent cell from which it was copied. Every different type cell in your body contains the same genes, but only some act to make the cells specialise – e.g. into nerve or muscle tissue.
