|Number of divisions||Two Divisions.||One cell Division.|
|Number and type of daughter cells produced||Results in the formation of four haploid sex cells (gametes) produced.||Two diploid identical daughter cells for one cell division.|
|Differences in chromosome arrangement||In Metaphase 1, the maternal chromosomes pair with the paternal chromosomes at the equator of the cell forming a tetrad (foursome). This pairing can be random. In this formation the chromosomes exchanging information creating new genetic material. This is called crossing over.||After cell division, the chromosome arrangement is the exact same for the parent and the daughters, (in a normal division). The same number and attributes are present in each cell.|
|Comparison of daughter cells to parent cells||Half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell. |
Daughter cells are not identical.
Cell organelles in relatively the same position.
|Exact same number of chromosomes as its parent. Daughter cells are identical to parents. |
Cell organelles in relatively the same position
