Binary Fission in ProtistsImage cropped - click to view
Illustrations of a protozoan reproducing via binary fission. The Oxytricha is undergoing the last processes of asexual binary fission. During fission, the micronucleus undergoes mitosis and the macronucleus elongates and undergoes amitosis. The cell then divides in two and each new cell obtains a copy of the micronucleus and the macronucleus.
