Biology: Cell Division Quiz On Mitosis And Meiosis!

Mitosis and Meiosis are both ways in which cells are divided into the body. Meiosis involves the creation of cells that are not genetically identical where, as in mitosis, the cells are the same as the parent cell. The quiz below will test how much you know about the processes. Give it a try!
