Asexual reproduction is defined as the process in which the offspring is born using a single parent.
Binary fission and budding are the types of asexual reproduction. The other classification of asexual reproduction are fragmentation and parthenogenesis.
Difference between Binary Fission and Budding
|The division of the cells into two daughter cells is known as binary fission||The formation of new bud from the parent organism is known as budding|
|Type of reproduction|
|It is a type of fission||It is a type of vegetative propagation|
|Identification of parent|
|Parent cell cannot be identified since the parent cell itself gets divided into two daughter cells||The parent cell gets detached from the new cell|
|Type of division|
|A symmetric division||An symmetric division|
|Bacteria and archaes show binary fission||Yeast and hydra show budding|
