Which of the following describes a difference between the processing of genetic material in binary fission versus mitosis? In binary fission, a single DNA strand splits into chromosomes; in mitosis, DNA is copied directly. In binary fission, DNA must undergo a mutation to replicate; in mitosis, it does not. In binary fission, DNA is transferred between two neighboring cells; in mitosis, the chromosomes of only one cell are replicated. In binary fission, a single DNA strand is replicated; in mitosis, multiple chromosomes are replicated.

    Binary Fission and Mitosis are almost exactly Identical in that both are ways that cells reproduce asexually, but bacteria go through Binary Fission while Eukaryotes go through mitosis

    so "In binary fission, a single DNA strand is replicated; in mitosis, multiple chromosomes are replicated."?

    yeah I agree because usually binary fission occurs in bacteria and prokaryotes while mitosis occurs in eukaryotes. So most of the prokaryotes have single circular DNA. That's how it happenns
