In what part of meiosis does chromatid separation occur?
Anaphase, Meiosis II
What is the difference between Mitosis and Meiosis?
Mitosis produces clones; Meiosis produces variable offspring
In S phase of the cell cycle, what is going on?
Cells prepare for cell division, Cells are replicating
- Chromosomes condense and the nucleolus begins to disappear
- A spindle forms and captures the chromosomes
In which phase of meiosis does separation of homologous chromosomes occur?
In _________________, homologous chromosomes separate from each other and in _________________ sister chromatids separate.
Meiosis I, Meiosis II
If you start with one cell, mitosis produces ____ cells while meiosis produces ____ cells.
A cell containing a diploid number of 36 chromosomes would contain _______ chromosomes in anaphase I
A parent cell containing 12 chromosomes undergoing mitosis will produce daughter cells containing ____ chromosomes
Interphase consists of
G1, S, G2
A homologous pair of chromosomes are:
2 chromosomes containing the same genes
At the very end of oogeneis,
1 ovum and 3 polar bodies are produced

Meiosis I and II
In mitosis, _________________ cells are produced and each cell is ___________ in comparison to the parent
2 diploid, identical
Prophase of Meiosis I
True/False: A clone means the same as being diploid
Why is it important for organisms to have genetic variability?
To survive in a changing environment
What causes variation in a population?
Mutations, Crossing over, independent assortment
What are the two important characteristics of stem cells?
