A cell plate.
Chromatids are not involved in mitosis.
A cell undergoing mitosis does not have homologous chromosomes.
There is no prophase during mitosis.
Homologous chromosomes do not pair up during mitosis.
The M phase is usually the longest phase.
Interphase consists of the G1, S, and, G2 phases.
Little happens during the G1 and G2 phases.
DNA replicates during cytokinesis.
The cell grows during the G1 phase.
Cell division ends with cytokinesis.
DNA replicates during the M phase.
Interphase is usually the longest phase.
Mitosis produces somatic cells and Meiosis produces gametes.
There are 2 separate divisions in Meiosis and only 1 division in Mitosis.
Mitosis produces genetically identical cells and Meiosis produces genetically different cells.
DNA replication happens once in Mitosis and DNA replicates twice in Meiosis.
Between Prophase I and Anaphase I
Between Prophase II and Anaphase II
Crossing over only occurs during Mitosis
Haploid cells are NOT present throughout in meiosis.
4 diploid cells.
2 diploid cells.
4 haploid cells.
2 haploid cells.
2, 4, 3, 1
2, 3, 4, 1
3, 2, 1, 4
3, 1, 2, 4
To produce 2 cells, each with 2 complete sets of chromosomes
To produce 2 cells, each with half the normal number of chromosomes
To produce 4 cells, each with 2 complete sets of chromosomes
To produce 4 cells, each with half the normal number of chromosomes
Centromeres of replicated chromosomes line up along the cell’s equator.
Centromeres divide as sister chromatids move toward opposite poles of the cell.
Homologous chromosome pairs line up along the cell’s equator.
Homologous chromosomes move toward opposite poles of the cell.

Male sperm will have always have an X chromosome but female eggs will have either an X or a Y chromosome.
Males produce 4 viable cells but females only produce 1 viable cell and 3 polar bodies.
Mitosis occurs in males and meiosis occurs in females.
There is no difference between gamete production in males and females.
Crossing over occurs when homologous chromosomes exchange genetic material.
Crossing over occurs during DNA replication.
Crossing over increases genetic diversity.
Crossing over usually only occurs during Meiosis.
