Genetics/G2-phase of meiosis


Sam wrote at 2012-11-19 14:23:54
As far as I know, meiosis does not have a G-1 as well as S phase ! But it may have a G-2 Phase . Because in such phase, cell prepares itself for the division . If we say the interphase does not have any one of these stages , then basically it can't be regarded as the interphase ! It won't be interphase it would certainly be a dormant phase! thanks!

I can answer questions related to Mendelian inheritance, heredity, population genetics, genetic diseases, molecular biology techniques, transcription/translation, mitosis, meiosis. Please don't ask for predictions about what (or whom) your unborn baby will look like. I can't see the future, and in most cases, I am unable to provide a satisfactory answer, just a range of possiblities. That being said, I will attempt to answer questions related to children already born.


Conducted research in the field for about 12 years. Also am a Biology professor so I teach most of these subjects on a regular basis. Familiar with many examples to use as illustations.
