Diagrams of Meiosis Stages

Learn the events of meiosis stages using the following diagram of meiosis. This diagram will show you the various phases of meiosis such as prophase, anaphase, metaphase, telophase. The changes taking place in each phase, such as the arrangement of chromatids along with each other are shown in the diagrams.

The meiosis is a process of cell division by which the chromosomes are reduced from the diploid to the haploid number. It takes place in all sexually reproducing organisms. Haploid sex cells are produced from the diploid cells in meiosis. You can notice in the following diagrams of meiosis that the stage consists of two divisions, both of which follow the same stages as mitosis (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase).

Before meiosis starts the normally diploid DNA has been duplicated. This means there are 4 copies of each gene, present in 2 full sets of DNA, each set having 2 alleles. In the diagram below, the red chromosomes are the ones inherited from the mother, the blue from the father. In the start of the following diagram, the DNA has already been replicated, which is why the red and blue chromosomes look like the letter “X”. The final outcome of meiosis is the production of four haploid daughter cells.
