Cell Cycle and Mitosis Project
Kassy Bennett & Sierra Burkham
The cell cycle or cell-division cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication (replication) that produces two daughter cells. Which includes G1, S, G2, Mitosis, and cytokinesis.
The part of the cell cycle in which chromosomes in a cell nucleus are separated into two identical sets of chromosomes, each in its own nucleus. Including prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.
The chromatin condenses into chromosomes. The centrioles separate, and spindle begins to form. The nuclear envelope breaks down.
The chromosomes line up across the center of the cell. Each chromosome is connected to spindle fibers at its centromere.
The sister chromatids separate into individual chromosomes and are moved apart.
The chromosomes gather at opposite ends of the cell and lose their distinct shapes. Two new nuclear envelopes will form.
