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:
"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."
