Do not confuse mitosis with meiosis, miosis, myositis, myosotis, amitosis, acidosis, or halitosis. Meiosis is a form of mitosis that results in germ cells (with half the chromosomes of the parent). Flemming was not aware of the laws of inheritance; working out the relation between chromosomes, mitosis, and genetics took another twenty years.
