Ugh you fool ! Well it's quite obvious... Mitosis is spelled with a "t" and Meiosis isn't duh.
Alyson, what even is the true difference between Meiosis and Mitosis?
No you dumb flamingos. There is clearly a better difference than the one you've just mention.
Oh yeah, what is it?!
Well to begin with, Meiosis is the division of chromosomes to form gametes. What are Gametes? Gametes are haploid which is 1 set of chromosomes (23). Mitosis with a "t" is the division of chromosomes to form a diploid which are 2 sets of chromosomes.
Ohhh, but what even are all these stages??
Mitosis only has 4 stages. There is two Meiosis and each one has 3 stages, so basically Meiosis is a process of 6 stages. That's two more than the stages of Mitosis.
The stages to Mitosis are Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase. For Meiosis 1 there is Prophase 1, Metaphase 1, and Anaphase 1 and for Meiosis 2 there is Prophase 2, Metaphase 2, and Anaphase 2.
