Making Reebops: a Model for Meiosis

Reebops are imaginary animals, made from marshmallows (or foam packing pieces). Their features are determined by the characteristics encoded in their chromosomes. Both parents are heterozygous for all their characteristics (except their sex).

General
Animations of Mitosis and Meiosis

A set of four animations from Biology by Raven et al. that outline the stages of meiosis; the unique features of meiosis; a comparison of meiosis and mitosis; and the generation of diversity through the random orientation of chromosomes during meiosis.
