mitosis is the processes in cell division when the nucleus divides usually with four stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. The end result is usually two nuclei-one from father the other from mother. miosis is the genetics of cell division that produces reproductive cells in sexually reproducing organisms; the nucleus divides itself into four and contains half the original chromosome number (begins at forty six then after halved twenty three)
