Storyboard Text

  • It is just like Mitosis, except it goes through the stages twice to produce 4 different cells instead of 2 identical ones!
  • Dad, I'm confused about meiosis. What's the whole deal about it?
  • Jay and his dad
  • The new cells also have half the DNA of the original cell so they are called haploids.
  • Let's say a sperm and egg cell (gametes) met at a party...
  • The two gametes get along so they decide to partner up and become one.
  • The sperm and egg get close and share secrets, (aka genetic information.) This is known as Prophase 1!
  • I bet Metaphase is next, where the chromosomes from the gametes line up in the middle of the cell!
  • You got it! Another key difference from mitosis- the chromosomes are still in their homologous pairs!
