Unit 4 Assignment: Mitosis and Meiosis: The Process of Cellular Reproduction
In this assignment you will be comparing mitosis and meiosis. These two processes are how parent cells produce daughter cells. However, they have two entirely different goals. What are the key steps of these two types of cellular reproduction? How does the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis generate variation and explain Mendel’s law of independent assortment?

o Then select “Shelf” template and make two columns:
One column will be “Mitosis”
One column will be “Meiosis”
o From there you can select backgrounds images to insert and text.
o When you are finished with your work, click “Share” and copy the link to your clipboard.
o Paste the link in the text box in the assignment in Blackboard.
•Your Padlet will address the following:
o What are the key steps of these two types of cellular reproduction?
Include key differences that lead to 2 clone daughter cells with a full set of identical DNA or 4 daughter cells that are genetically unique but have only half the DNA needed.
o How does the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis generate variation and explain Mendel’s law of independent assortment?
•Your Padlet will be fun and informative.
•You will cite all images used.
•You will use intext citations and references in APA format. You may use your textbook and other internet resources.
