    Hello,

    i'm supposed to draw the different stages of prophase, metapase, anaphase and telophase for Drosophila melanogaster ... a fruit fly..

    the information that they gave was that D.melanogaster has 8 chromosomes in each of its somatic cells..

    but i'm not sure how to draw!

    the following is the image given in my tutorial notes... so i guess i'm supposed to draw something similar to that? Please teach me how to draw this.. if you know!

    Thank you!

    Draw what's given but simplify it a bit - it doesn't need to be so complicated.

    Considering it is for a specific species I'd say yes draw 8 chromosomes.
    As for prophase and telophase it doesn't matter - the chromosomes have decondensed so just draw a squiggle. You could make it similar in size to the chromosomes if you wanted to.
