BRIEFLY SUMMARIZE THE PROCESSES OF MITOSIS AND MEIOSIS INDICATING WHERE THE SIMILARITIES LIE AND IN WHICH ASPECTS THEY DIFFER.
DON’T FORGET TO MENTION THE PRIMARY REASON FOR EACH TYPE OF CELL DIVISION BY INDICATING THE ROLES THAT MITOSIS AND MEIOSIS PLAY IN HUMAN REPRODUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT. EXPLAIN WHAT IS MEANT BY THE TERM ‘LINKED GENES’ WITH RESPECT TO HOMOLOGOUS RECOMBINATION. IDENTIFY THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHROMOSOMAL ABNORMALITIES THAT CAN LEAD TO DISEASE (E.G. INSERTIONS) AND IN A SENTENCE OR TWO, DESCRIBE A DISORDER ASSOCIATED WITH ONE OF THESE ABERRATIONS. PLEASE USE REFERENCES IF NOT IN OWN WORDS.
