What is the difference between mitosis and meiosis?

Although they are both forms of cell division, these processes have some key differences. Mitosis results in the cell dividing into 2 genetically identical diploid daughter cells whereas meiosis results in 4 haploid daughter cells which are genetically identical. Additionally, mitosis occurs during grown and repair whereas meiosis occurs during gamete formation in sexual reproduction.
