meiosis is the process that allows one diploid cell to divide in a special way to generate hapliod cells in eukaryotes. Mitosis is the process in which a cell seperates its duplicated genome into two identical halves. It's generally followed immediately by cytokinesis which divides cytoplasm and cell membrane, which results in two daughter cells.

Mitosis is simple cell division, ending up with two identical cells, each with both pairs of every gene. Meiosis is cell division for gametes (sex cells). This is a two step process, and the four cells that remain each have half the normal cells, so that when the gametes fuse at conception, there will be a new organization of DNA, from both parents.
