How do the events in the cell cycle ensure that the genetic information in the daughter cells will be identical to that of the parents cell?
the cells divide (that of the parent's) and they go to different parts needed in order for the daughter cell to be the same or at least resemble it
This is correct. Instead of Mitosis, the normal kind of cell division in which the cell's DNA duplicates to form 2 identical daughter cells, Meiosis creates 4 daughter cells, each with only 23 chromosomes. Also, meiosis 'crosses over' chromosomes to form daughter cells with unique chromosomes, which will contain genetic information from both biological parents.
