I keep getting confused between mitosis, osmosis, and meiosis. I just need to know what the sages of mitosis are. If I figure that out, I'll be able to figure out meiosis because it'll be the other one.
What helps me to remember the difference between mitosis and meiosis is that mitosis results in two daughter cells while meiosis results in four. Meiosis forms sex cells.
Here are the stages of mitosis not in much detail though.
1) Interphase. DNA is replicated and is chromatin.
2) Prophase. DNA forms chromosomes and nucleus disappears.
3) Metaphase. chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell.
4) Anaphase. chromosomes split in the middle on centromere
5) Telophase. The chromosome halves are equally divided now and an "envelope" forms around each half.
6) Cytokinesis. cytoplasm is divided and the cell splits and pinches, forming two new daughter cells
