Homework Help: science-SCI/230

Posted by Nolagrl on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 3:38am.

This is my first time using Jishka. Well, registering and using the site. I have checked the site when researching class topics we are learning. I don’t think I really have a question but I am looking for clarity of something for class. I just want to make sure that I have the correct understanding of meiosis and mitosis. In humans, mitosis is important because it produces the identical chromosomes that are in our DNA. Meiosis is important because it multiplies the number of cells with cell division, and reduces the number of chromosomes in each daughter cell by half the number before meiosis. If I do not have this correct, can you please tell me what I am not grasping about the importance of mitosis and meiosis in humans.
