What happens to chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis?
Mitosis is for somatic cells so they can repair parts of the body, make more cells, etc. Meiosis I divides the number of chromosomes in half, making the cell haploid. The homologous chromosomes divide. Each cell still has 1 of each type of chromosome (1 #1, 1#2, 1 #3, etc.) but only one of it.
