Prepare for the Lab Monday

Monday through Thursday we will conduct the mitosis and meiosis lab. It would be best if you would review mitosis and look ahead to meiosis. Mitosis is covered in chapter 12 while meiosis is found in chapter 13.

Though chapter 13 is not included in the next exam, pairing the learning of mitosis and meiosis allows you to compare and contrast each. Meiosis is the type of cell division that reduces the chromosome complement by 1/2 and is done by gametes (sex cells / sperm and eggs).
