Abstract

In the Meiosis simulation you will learn about the second major type of cell division which gives rise to the haploid male and female gametes. Learn about the various stages of meiosis and how they compare to those of mitosis before learning about in vitro fertilization and preimplantation genetic diagnosis. Will you be able to apply this knowledge to help a couple who are hoping to have a baby through in vitro fertilization?
