Cell cycle

a living organism has this. it begins with the organisms formation, its followed by growth and development, ends with death. individual cells also have this.

interphase

cell grows and functions, organelles duplicate. DNA is copied; chromosomes duplicate. cell grows and prepares for mitosis. ITS THE LONGEST PART OF CELL CYCLE

mitosis

the process in which the nucleus divides to form two identical nuclei. each new nucleus is identical to the original nucleus. the steps are: prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telephase.

interphase

1.the cells chromosomes duplicate. the cells nucleus is clearly visible.

prophase

2.the chromatid pairs are visible. the spindle is begining to form.

metaphase

3.chromatid pairs line up in the center of the cell

anaphase

4.the chromosomes have seperated
