Motosis and Moisis
Mitosis refers to a division of cells. Meiosis on the other hand is to the division of gametes. So it goes diploid to haploid. The difference between Mitosis and Meiosis is that Meiosis is a sexual reproduction of cells and Mitosis is not.
Meiosis is a unique type of cell that mak gametes with not as many chromosomes. The opposita process would be syngamy or fertalization, a very different organism that has unique difrent ither parent is made. The sygote divides and grown to form an embryo which turns into a young organism.
Mitosis is where chromosomes are copied and split. It starts with prophase. Prophase is when the DNA duplicates. They became exactly the same like a copy in. eres metophase which is when the DNA duplicates and face eachother. On the opposite sides. Anaphase is next and is when the daughter chromosomes move away from eachother to opposite sides of the cell. Last is telephase and thats where all cells split to form nuclei.
