Meiosis in Action

Meiosis is a type of cell division that results in the formation of 4 new daughter cells, that are not genetically identical to the parent cells. However, they still carry genetic material from the parents, half from each parent. Meiosis is split into 2 phases, Meiosis I and Meiosis II. Meiosis I results in two haploid cells being formed from a diploid cell, and during Meiosis II, the sister chromatids formed in Meiosis I are split and formed into these 4 new haploid daughter cells.

Alexa Branzuela and I partnered together to complete this Meiosis in Motion project! I was very pleasantly surprised with what we produced. Stop motions, although they are very fun and visually appealing to watch, take a lot of patience and time to complete at a mastery level. This project was a learning experience in that I wish that there were some things we completed different, such as the materials we used. The paper had a tendency to move around and cause troubles in keeping the filming consistent. However, the end product was very worth the time we took on it, and I am very happy with our hard work!
