Problem

Assume that the cell illustrated in the figure below is from a species of crab.

a. Is this cell undergoing mitosis, meiosis I, or meiosis II? HOW DID YOU DECIDE?

b. What is the haploid number of this species (i.e., in a gamete produced by an organism of this species)? What is the species’ diploid number?

c. Has any crossing-over occurred prior to this stage? If so, for which allele(s)?

d. Will the daughter cells from this division be haploid or diploid?

e. How many chromatids would be present in a muscle cell from this crab in the G2 phase of its mitotic cell cycle?
