Homework Help: BiO

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, May 20, 2007 at 2:21pm.

I am comfused about meiosis and mitosis. First of all, both are forms of asexual reproduction, right?
I know that in mitosis, you end up with two offspring. In meiosis, you end up with four.
I don't get the part about the chromosomes. If you start out with a certain number, like 4, will you end up with 4 chromosomes ine each offspring, or half that, 2?

Thanks.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Although Biology is definitely not my area, here are some sites on your subject:

1. http://www.accessexcellence.org/RC/VL/GG/comparison.html

2. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/miracle/divide.html

3. (Broken Link Removed)

4. (Broken Link Removed)

Although there are more sites, these look like they would cover what you need.
