|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:
|"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."

exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color
copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed

|"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did
with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both
detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them
and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the
lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to
say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.
The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have
done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with
your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical
Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my
last minute revisions."

|"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
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
