Cell Cycle B
Answer each question.
- Compare mitosis to meiosis I and meiosis II.
Where are there specific similarities and differences within the phases? What are some things that could go wrong? What are the consequences?
- Describe the relationship between the terms DNA, gene, chromosome, allele, polypeptide, and protein. Why do you think scientists at one time thought the genetic material might have been protein?
