Review Questions: CELL REPLICATION 1. Fill-in the Table: compare and contrast Mitosis vs. Meiosis QUESTION MITOSIS MEIOSIS In what type of cell does each form of cell replication occur? What are the purposes of each form of cell replication? How many times does DNA replicate? How many chromosomes are in the human parent cell? How many cell divisions occur? How many daughter cells are formed from 1 parent cell? How many chromosomes are in each daughter cell? Are daughter cells genetically identical to or different from parent cells? Does "crossing over" occur? If so when and why? ls reproduction sexual or asexual?
|1.||Somatic cells and germ cells both||Germ cells only|
|2.||cell regeneration, growth, and asexual reproduction,||production of gametes for sexual reproduction.|
|4.||Depends on the species||Depends on the species|
|7.||same as the parent||half of the parent|
|9.||yes, when homologous chromosomal segments are accidentally
paired in asexual cells such as body cells.
|yes, in the first division of meiosis.|
