Difference between mitosis and meiosis.

Meiosis creates four haploid (n) gametes that are genetically distinctive from each other and the original parent (germ) cell, whereas mitosis generates two diploid (2n) somatic cells that are genetically identical to each other and the original parent cell.

Mitosis is a one-stage process, whereas meiosis is a two-stage one. Meiosis generates haploid cells, whereas mitosis generates diploid cells (46 chromosomes) (23 chromosomes). Meiosis creates four genetically distinct daughter cells, whereas mitosis generates two identical daughter cells.
