Structure found inside the dividing cells of plants and some algae.
Containing two complete sets of chromosomes, one from each parent
The pinching of the membrane before cytokineses
Cell division that results in TWO daughter cells that are genetically IDENTICAL to the original cell.
Cell Growth and DNA Synthesis
Chromosome pairs (one from each parent) that are similar in length, gene position, and centromere location.
