Summary Introduction

To explain: The differences between mitosis and meiosis on the basis of different characteristics.

Introduction:

Mitosis is a form of cell division that produces two cells, and each cell possesses the same complement of the chromosome as the parent cell. Meiosis is a form of cell division in which one cycle of chromosomal replication is followed by two successive cell divisions to produce four haploid cells.

Explanation

Differences between mitosis and meiosis on the basis of characteristics are as follows:

No.CharacteristicsMitosisMeiosis
1.Number of daughter cells producedMitosis is a process of cell division that produces 2 daughter cells.Meiosis is a form of a cell division that produces 4 daughter cells.
2.Number of chromosomes per daughter cellEach daughter cell contains the same complement of 46 (2n) chromosomes as the parent cell.Each daughter cell carries half of the parent chromosome that is 23 (n) chromosomes.
3.Do chromosomes pair.Chromosomes do not pair in case of mitosis...
