With them resides -- the lilly of the vale.

Lacking this information, the most reasonable thing to do is to assign the daughter cells distinct names, creating the potential for a match to occur.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
Consequently, the properties of the mitochondrial populations within stem cells affect whether making either stem cells or differentiated daughters is more likely – an important factor during the development of organisms and in the correct maintenance of cell populations throughout life.
The chaos within: exploring noise in cellular biology
The standard view is that variations in chromosome partitioning via unequal chromosomal placement in daughter cells creates gynandromorphs.
A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation
Chromosomal placement can put limits on the future possible chromosomal divergence in daughter cells.
A Developmental Network Theory of Gynandromorphs, Sexual Dimorphism and Species Formation
A change in the DNA sequence that is passed on to daughter cells is called a mutation.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
If two particles are in the same cell, then this cell is divided into eight “daughter” cells (an oct tree) of equal volume (see Figs. 1 and 2 in Barnes & Hut 1986).
Long-term stability of collisionless equilibrium configurations; algorithms
In Figure 8 we plot cost versus power for the family of all tests generated for the root cell, A1, referred to as “cell 1,” and one of its two daughter cells, referred to as “cell 2.” Thus each point is a pair (β, c(XA,β )).
Hierarchical testing designs for pattern recognition
The process of “finishing” includes calculating the total mass and spatial extent of the set of all daughter cells, which permits fast evaluation of multipole contributions during calculation of gravitational forces among groups of particles.

Dixon points out two problems with Pielou’s test of independence: (i) it fails to identify certain types of segregation (e.g., mother-daughter processes) and (ii) the sampling distribution of NNCT cell counts is not appropriate (see Dixon (1994)).
On the Use of Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables for Testing Spatial Segregation
In such a process, it is possible to obtain a NNCT in which the cell counts are very similar to the ones expected under the Pielou null hypothesis, while in reality the pattern exhibits the segregation of the daughters.
On the Use of Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables for Testing Spatial Segregation
Immortal DNA strand co-segregation is a chromosome segregation mechanism whereby one of the daughter cells receives all of the chromosomes containing the oldest DNA template strands of the previous replication cycle.
Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
This parent cell must have had N − 1 other parent strands coming from N − 1 other chromosomes that segregated into the daughter cell.
Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
These nk strand-pairs produce, upon replication, 2nk strand-pairs belonging to the kth homologous group, which then segregate equally into two daughter cells, so that each of the daughter cells have exactly nk strandpairs belonging to the kth homologous group.
Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
For convenience of the derivation, we assume that each new chromosome segregates into a left daughter cell and a right daughter cell (relevant figures may be found in ).
