How does the function of meiosis differ from that of mitosis?

Mitosis makes new cells that are used in growth, development, repair, and asexual reproduction. Meiosis makes cells that allow an organism to reproduce sexually. In mitosis the cell is cloned and in meiosis 4 different cells are created due to crossover and independent assortment. Mitosis results in 2 similar cells and meiosis results in 4 different cells. Meiosis only produces sex cells and mitosis produces everything other than sex cells.
