Biology: The Cell: 12: Cell Division - Overview of Meiosis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: In this lesson, we'll look at an overview of the type of cell division called meiosis. Meiosis takes place in an organism's reproductive structures called gonads for the sole purpose of producing haploid gametes that are genetically different. These haploid gametes are sperm cells in the male and eggs in the female. In the plant kingdom, pollen grains contain the male gamete, while structures called ovules contain the female gamete. Let's take a brief look at how meiosis produces gametes. A cell about to undergo meiosis will have already replicated its chromosomes during interphase of the cell cycle. This original cell is diploid, which means it has two sets of chromosomes, one from each parent, sometimes written as 2n. Through two stages of cell division, meiosis produces four genetically different haploid gametes, sometimes written as n. For this reason, meiosis is also called reduction division. It reduces the total chromosome number in half. So, when the haploid sperm cell and haploid egg cell unite to form a zygote during fertilization, the diploid number of chromosomes is restored in the resultant zygote. We'll examine the details of meiosis one and two in a separate video. [music]

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
