Briefly describe the phases of Meiosis I.
Prophase is where DNA condenses and forms chromosomes. But the big difference is when chromosomes form chiasmata to trade bits of DNA so that what results is an individual, different than the parent cell. Metaphase Cells line the equator, The spindle forms and attaches to chromasomes. Anaphase: The spindle pull apart the chromosomes where they migrate to the poles. Telophase: The cell splits, the nuclear envelope reappears and chromosomes unwind.
