Mitosis and Meiosis

Question:
Tell what happens to the number of chromosomes and chromatids during each stage of mitosis and meiosis.
Answer:

Prophase- chromosomes are forming
Metaphase-same number of chromosomes move to center of cell. Metaphase ends when chromosomes split, thus doubling the number of chromosomes.
Anaphase-When the chromosomes split at the end of metaphase, the chromosome number is doubled. Ex) human cell
Phase # of Chromosomes # of Chromotids
Pro 46 92
Meta 46 92
Ana 92 92
Telo 92 92
Telophase-Telophase begins when chromosomes reach the poles of the daughter cells.
Interphase- Non dividing stage
G1- each chrmosome has oen chromotid, cell has grown in size
S-DNA synthesis occurs
G2- each chromosome has two chromatids.
