- Prokaryosis cells divide by the process of binary fission.
- Eukaryotes divide by two steps: mitosis and cytokinesis.
- The two daughter cells that result are genetically identical to each other and to the parent cells.
- This is also how many single-celled organisms reproduce.
Outline the role of cell division in the growth, repair, and reproduction of multicellular organisms.
