Suniti from G.D. GOENKA PUBLIC SCHOOL, asked a question
Subject: Science , asked on 15/3/15

what is the difference between binary fission and budding?

  • Fission occurs only in unicellular organisms eg:- Amoeba where as budding occurs in multicellular organisms and unicellular organisms eg:- yeast and hydra
  • In binary  fission, the parent divides into two  daughters where as in budding the parent doesn 't divide but produces one or more outgrowths to form new individuals...so, in fission the identity of the parent is lost but in budding the identity of the parent is not lost
  • In fission the nucleus divides first and then the cleavage of cytoplasm takes place but in budding, the cellular outgrowth develops first followed by the nuclear division.

Hope this answers ur query

  • cytokinesis: cytoplasmic division
  • karyokinesis: nuclear division

b.fission:

  1. the parent divides itself into 2
  2. first karokinesis, then cytokinesis
  3. amoeba, euglena and paramoecium

budding

  1. the parent produces a bud
  2. cytokinesis and karyokinesis at the same time
  3. yeast, hydra

hope its clear. and yes -->   please!

budding is formed by producing a bud and then detching 4rm d parent cell whereas fission is d division of an adult cell to @ daughter cells

binary fission is the process in which the parent organism splits into two new organism.
budding is the process in which a bud formed on parent organism after maturation detaches from the parent.

In binary Fission , parent body divides itself into two organism by dividing its nucleus and cytoplasm
Eg:-Reproduction in Amoeba

In Budding , a small tentacle appears on parent body . After sometime it detaches itself from parent body
Eg;- Reproduction in Hydra

in binary fiision identity of the parent organism is lost whereas in budding identity of parent organism is maintained

in both of them,the organism divides to form a new individual.but binary can take place only in unicellulars,and budding in multicellulars

 DEFINITION:

budding : the new organism is formed from the parent cell


fission : the parent cell is separated to form to new organisms

Difference:

  • cytokinesis: cytoplasmic division
  • karyokinesis: nuclear division

b.fission:

  1. the parent divides itself into 2
  2. first karokinesis, then cytokinesis
  3. amoeba, euglena and paramoecium

budding

  1. the parent produces a bud
  2. cytokinesis and karyokinesis at the same time
  3. yeast, hydra
