Hello! What are two similarities of Mitosis and Meiosis? Thanks :)

1 Answer

  • Mitosis and meiosis are the two ways by which cells reproduce. As a result, they share several steps in their respective processes. Meiosis adds another division and a step that mixes the genetic material, but in both cases the cell must duplicate its DNA, pull it apart into two sets, place the sets on each end of itself, and then divide down the middle. Both mitosis and meiosis produce fresh new cells based on their parent cells' genes.
