Asexual Reproduction

Asexual reproduction is the process of producing and offspring with only 1 parent (neither sperm nor egg play a part). Some examples of asexual production are budding, binary fission, and cell division. Asexual reproduction results in a parent cell and an identical daughter cell. Their genetic material is identical as well.  Ginger reproduces asexually by budding. To reproduce by budding means that a daughter cell grows and splits off from a part of the parent cell. The “eyes” of ginger and potatoes are actually buds that will soon form into an identical offspring of the organism it is found on.
