Meiosis
crossing over occurs

Generates four daughter cells from one parent cell

Daughter cells are haploid (n).

Daughter cells are not genetically identical to the parent cell.

Used to make gametes

Used to make sex cells

Two cell divisions

exchange of genetic materials occurs between chromosomes

Offspring different from each other

Mitosis
Generates two daughter cells from one parent cell.

Daughter cells are diploid (2n).

Daughter cells are genetically identical to the parent cell.

Body cells do this.

One cell division

Used for growth and repair

Offspring identical to each other
