Interphase- when DNA replication occurs; longest part of Meiosis. Prophase 1- the nuclear membrane breaks down.The centrioles and the chromosomes begin to move and spindle fibers start to assemble.The duplicated chromosomes condense and the homologous chromosomes pair up. Metaphase 1- spindle fibers align the homologous chromosomes along the cell equator.Each side of the equator has chromosomes from both parents. Anaphase 1- The paired homologous chromosomes separate from each other and move towards opposite sides of the cell.sister chromatids remain attached. Telophase 1- the spindle fibers disassemble and the cell undergoes cytokinesis.
