What is Meiosis?

By July 19, 2008

Follow me on:

Lily Anther Microsporocytes © John C. Glase
Meiosis is a two-part cell division process in organisms that sexually reproduce.

Meiosis produces gametes with one half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell.

There are two stages of meiosis: meiosis I and meiosis II. At the end of the meiotic process, four daughter cells are produced.

Each of the resulting daughter cells has one half of the number of chromosomes as the parent cell.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
