Meiosis

Context/Location: Meiosis

In the nucleus of eukaryotes

Nature/description of genetic information: Meiosis

Genetic information is halved.  The alleles for each trait are separated, assuring one member of each pair in daughter cells.

Keeping track of:: Meiosis

Each chromosome pair* is halved independently of the others; following replication and pairing of homologous chromosomes. 

*In the case of higher ploidy, there will be more than two.
