Meiosis is the process by which a single cell divides twice to generate four cells with half the original genetic material. These are our germ cells, or gametes, which include sperm in men and eggs in females. One cell divides twice during meiosis to produce four daughter cells. These four daughter cells are haploid, meaning they have half the amount of chromosomes as the parent cell. Meiosis is classified into nine phases. These are separated into two parts: the first time the cell divides (meiosis I) and the second time it divides (meiosis II) (meiosis II). This series of twelve slides on Meiosis in Onion Root Tip is an excellent resource for understanding this common topic in school curricula.
