Mitosis & Meiosis

Mitosis (asexual reproduction) is cell division that results in two identical daughter cells from a single parent cell (unicellular organisms or tissues, membranes and fiber cells).  Meiosis (sexual reproduction) is a division of a germ cell into four sex cells (sperm, egg), each having half the number of genetic material as the parent cell.
