4 Mitosis One type of cell division Cell process in which the nucleus divides to form two nuclei identical to each other, and identical to the original nucleus, in a series of steps (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase)
5 Mitosis allows for growth and replaces worn out or damaged cells.
6 Interphase Period of growth & development Hereditary information (DNA) copied (replicated / duplicated)Cells that do not divide (nerves) are always in interphase
45 In summary: Meiosis Two cells form during meiosis I In meiosis II, both of these cells form two cellsThe two divisions of the nucleus result in four sex cells (gametes)Each has one-half the number of chromosomes in its nucleus that was in the original nucleus
