Similarly, it is asked, does independent assortment occur in meiosis 1 or 2?
During meiosis, 1 diploid cell undergoes 2 cycles of cell division but only 1 round of DNA replication. The result is 4 haploid daughter cells known as gametes. Independent assortment is the process where the chromosomes move randomly to separate poles during meiosis.
Similarly, what event in meiosis does Mendel's Law of Independent Assortment correspond to? The law of independent assortment reflects that each homologous pair of chromosomes aligns independently of other chromosome pairs during metaphase I of meiosis.
Correspondingly, how is the Law of Independent Assortment related to meiosis?
The Principle of Independent Assortment describes how different genes independently separate from one another when reproductive cells develop. During meiosis, the pairs of homologous chromosome are divided in half to form haploid cells, and this separation, or assortment, of homologous chromosomes is random.
What is the definition of meiosis 2?
Definition. The second of the two consecutive divisions of the nucleus of eukaryotic cell during meiosis, and composed of the following stages: prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, and telophase II. Supplement. Meiosis is a specialized form of cell division that ultimately gives rise to non-identical sex cells.
