How cell reproduce?

Our cells reproduce so that we may grow and regenerate.

Cell division is the process by which a parent cell divides into two or more daughter cells. The division of cells usually occurs as part of a larger cell cycle.

The cell is reproduced by two different types:  

1. Mitosis- It is the process by which a cell splits into two genetically identical copies each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus is called mitosis.

2. Meiosis- It is a special type of cell division in sexually-reproducing organisms where a single cell divides twice to produce four cells containing half the original amount of genetic information. These cells are our sex cells – used to produce the gametes sperm in males, eggs in females.
