At the end of each meiotic division, four daughter cells are produced.
Meiosis is a type of cell division that results in the formation of four daughter cells each with half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell.
- Meiosis is a type of cell division that reduces the chromosome number by half generating four haploid cells. Each cell is genetically different from the parent cell.
- The only cells that undergo meiosis will become sperm or eggs.
- Meiosis is the form of nuclear cell division that results in daughter cells that have one half the chromosome numbers as the original cell.
- In organisms that are diploid, the end result is cells that are haploid. Each daughter cell gets one complete set of chromosomes, i.e., one of each homologous pair of chromosomes.
