Cell division is a process which leads to cell multiplication.
It occurs in both plants and animals. Original cells which undergo division are known as parent cells and the new on ones resulting from division are known as daughter cells.
There are two types of cell division i.e. Mitosis (mitotic cell division) which occurs in somatic cells leading to growth and developments and Meiosis (meiotic cell division) which occurs in reproductive cells leading to production of gametes (sex cells).
