Refers to the cells produced during mitosis and meiosis.
Daughter cells produced during mitosis result from the division of a single parent cell. Two are produced, they are diploid with identical chromosomes to both the parent cell and each other.
Daughter cells produced during meiosis are haploid, i.e. they have half the number of chromosomes of the parent cell. These cells are not identical to each other.
