Meiosis
Two cell divisions.

Homologous chromosomes exchange genetic information.

Generates four daughter cells from one parent cell.

Daughter cells are haploid (n).

Daughter cells are not genetically identical to the parent cell.

Used for gametogenesis.

Germ cells do this.

Includes two rounds of prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.

Mitosis
One cell division.

Homologous chromosomes do not align or form tetrads.

Generates two daughter cells from one parent cell.

Daughter cells are diploid (2n).

Daughter cells are genetically identical to the parent cell.

Somatic cells do this.

Includes one round of prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
