Mitochondria liberate energy for the work that cells do.

 
Cellular Respiration  PPT   PDF  Notes

Cell Reproduction (Mitosis & Meiosis) 

Cells divide to increase their numbers through a process of mitosis, which results in two daughter cells with identical sets of chromosomes.

 

The life cycles and reproduction methods of sexual and asexual organisms differ.
