a one-celled microorganism that contains no nucleus
the sequence of growth and division that dividing cells go through
structure formed in cytokinesis that divides the cytoplasm of a plant cell in half

DNA deoxyribonucleic acid
large molecules that carry the genetic information necessary for all cellular functions
midplane of the cell
cell that has a true nucleus surrounded by a membrane
segments of DNA that carry information and give directions for everthing the cell is and will be
period in the cell cycle when the cell grows, produces more cell structures, and doubles its chromosome set
the second stage in mitosis in which the doubled chromosomes line up along the cell's equator and are split into single chromosomes
fiber-like structures that extend from opposite sides of the cell in mitosis; form the spindle
