    Mitosis is not a direct cell division, and meiosis is when the number of chromosomes becomes less than half during cell division. Mitosis occurs only in somatic cells and is the basis for non-sexual reproduction. Another difference is that in metaphase, the doubled chromosomes line up in a circle.

    Meiosis occurs in the maturing germ cells, and also underlies sexual reproduction. In it, there are two subsequent divisions and there is a conjugation. In metaphase, the doubled chromosomes line up along the equator in pairs, forming four haploid cells.
