Asexual Reproduction
Division of the cell nucleus, results in two daughter nuclei, each have the same number of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.
Cell Cycle
Cyclic series of events in the life of a dividing eukaryotic cell; consist of stages of interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
Cell Plate
The structure that forms during cytokinesis in plants, separating the two daughter cells produced by mitosis.
Specialized constricted region of a chromatid; contains the kinetochore.
One of two identical halves of duplicated chromosome.
The complex of DNA, proteins and some RNA that makes up some that makes up eukaryotic chromosomes.
Structures in the cell of a nucleus, composed of chromatin and containing genes.
a population of genetically identical organisms asexually propagated from a single individual.
Crossing Over
The breaking and rejoining of homologous (non sister) chromatids during early meitonic prophase 1, resulting in an exchange of genetic material.
Stage of cell division in which the cytoplasm is divided to form two daughter cells.
The conditions of having two sets of chromosomes per nucleus.
Fusion of n gametes; results in the formation of a 2n zygote.
A sex cell; in plants and animals, eggs and sperm.
The condition of have one set of chromosomes per nucleus.
Stage of the cell cycle between successive mitonic divsions; Its subdivisions are the G1 (first gap), S (DNA synthesis) and G2 (second gap) phases.
The chromosomal constitution of an individual
Process in which 2n cells undergoes two successive nuclear divisions, potentially producing four nuclei
The stage of mitosis, and of meiosis I and II; in which chromosomes line up at equator.
A type of reproduction involving only one parent (genetically identical offspring.
The first stage of mitosis, meiosis I and II; chromosomes become visible as distinct structures, the nuclear envelope breaks down, spindle fibers form.
Sexual Reproduction
Type of reproduction in which two gametes fuse to for a zygote.
Structure consisting of mainly microtubes that provides the framework for chromosome movement during cell division.
Last stage of mitosis, meiosis I and II, when, having reached the poles, chromosomes become decondensed and a nuclear envelope forms around each group.
Chromosome complex formed by the synapsis of homologous chromosomes during meitonic Prophase I.
The 2n cell that results from the union of the n gametes in sexual reproduction.
