Cell Division – Mitosis & Meiosis

CELL DIVISION: Mitosis & Meiosis

Cell Cycle

Can be divided into 2 stages: INTERPHASE.

  • G1 Growth phase 1.
  • S  Synthetic phase.
  • G2 Growth phase 2.
  • During Synthetic phase, DNA duplicates. The genetic material doubles, means from 2N it becomes 4N.

DIVISIONAL PHASE.

  • M Mitosis/Meiosis.
  • C Cytokinesis.
