Meiosis

Post by nicolawordsworth » Tue Dec 27, 2005 8:04 pm

I have a few questions to answer any ideas?
On the lifecycle of a simple organism that reproduces both sexually and asexually
a) the cell at stage A containes 16 chromosomes, how many chromosomes will there be in an asexual spore and in Cell C?
b) explain why-the cells produced by stage B will be gentically identical and the cells produced at stage A will all be genetically different?
(It is a diagram try to picture 3 circles in a vertical line middle one being labelled B and the bottom one labelled A, the top one has no label then to the left in between A and B is a circle labelled C
Sorry not very clear can I somehow draw it? Tried to add the drawing in add attachment

Try to draw it or something.
I couldn't get it.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.
