Mitotic cell division?
Mitosis is the the process at which body cells divide and reproduce. The daughter cells will have the same amount of chromosomes as the parent cells after the process of Mitosis is over. Meiosis is the process at which reproductive cells divide and reproduce. The daughter cells will have 1/2 the number of chromosomes as the parent cells. ...

Your cells have to grow, repair themselves and reproduce. Mitosis is the process in which they do this. ...
What are sperm or eggs that contain half the number of choromsomes as the body cells?

What are some parts of your body that reproduce frequently?
