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
mitosis(important)
is important to living things because it creates new cells
asexual reproduction
a new organism is produced from one organism, the new organism's DNA is identical to the parent organism.
sexual reproduction
2 sex cells come together(egg and sperm)
sperm
formed in the male reproductive organ
egg
formed in the female reproductive organ
fertilization
the joining of a sperm and an egg
