Cell Division

By Oliver Smith

Cell division is the process by which cells can make more cells. It only allows organisms to become more complex, it also allows organisms to replace cells and repair tissue. Mitosis and meiosis are two different processes of cell division. Mitosis is the process by which a cell creates identical copies. In these cells, the DNA is exactly alike. Meiosis is the process by which a cell divides into two, non identical, cells, meaning the DNA is not the same. Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, provides instructions to produce many different types of proteins needed to make structures within living things.

  • Chromosomes are thread-like structures composed of DNA. They are found in the nucleus of cells.
  • Deoxyribonucleic acid is more commonly known as DNA. It is a double helical molecule.It makes up chromosomes and stores genetic information.
  • A diploid cell has double the number of chromosomes of a haploid cell. In humans a diploid cell contains 46 chromosomes.diploid cells are found all over the body.
  • HOMOLOGOUS PAIR
  • Cell Division Vocabulary
  • HAPLOID CELL
  • Cells have two sets of chromosomes, one from the mother and one from the father. A homologous pair are two chromosomes that have the same genes on them, but not the same alleles.
  • A haploid cell has half the number of chromosomes of a diploid cell. In humans a haploid cell contains 23 chromosomes. An examples of haploid cells are sperm and egg cells.
