Meiosis is the process of cell division which results in the formation of four haploid cells from a single diploid cell. This cell division completes in 2 cycles - meiosis I and Meiosis II.

Meiosis is the process by which a single cell is divided twice into four cells by containing half of the genetic information or chromosome of the parent cell and thus are haploid in nature. These cells are none other than sex cells or gametes– sperm in males and eggs in females. Meiosis occurs over the course of two rounds of nuclear divisions termed as meiosis I and meiosis II  Furthermore, meiosis I and meiosis II are each divided into 4 major subcategories, prophase,metaphase,anaphase and telophase.  Meiosis I is responsible for Creating genetically unique chromosomes where sister chromatids pair up with homologous and exchange genetic material with one another. At the end of the division, one parent cell produces two daughter cells, each carrying one set of sister chromatids.

Meiosis II is similar to mitosis. The two daughter cells move into this phase without any further chromosome duplication. The sister chromatids are pulled apart during this division that finally results into a total of four haploid daughter cells during the course of meiosis II
