When the cells of a eukaryotic organism splits its called mitosis, whats it called when the cells of a prokaryotic organism splits?
or cell division
The Process is called Binary Fission. In Prokaryotic organisms like bacteria do not have any cell membrane present surrounding their cellular DNA. So, it is impossible for them to split into exact copies like in Eukaryotic organisms. So, to reproduce, Binary fission comes into existence. The Binary Fission is a very important concept in Biology and is asked in many competitive exams as well like NEET, AIIMS, and JIPMER. Through Binary Fission, The single chromosome is replicated, and the two copies split into two halves of a dividing cell.
