Mitosis - Wikipedia
The primary result of mitosis and cytokinesis is the transfer of a parent cell's genome into two daughter cells. The genome is composed of a number of chromosomes—complexes of tightly coiled DNA that contain genetic information vital for proper cell function.

mitosis | Definition, Stages, Diagram, & Facts ...
Mitosis: Mitosis, a process of cell duplication, or reproduction, during which one cell gives rise to two genetically identical daughter cells. Strictly applied, the term is used to describe the duplication and distribution of chromosomes, the structures that carry the genetic information.

LabBench Activity Mitosis and Meiosis. by Theresa Knapp Holtzclaw. Introduction. For organisms to grow and reproduce, cells must divide. Mitosis and meiosis are both processes of cell division, but their outcomes are very different.
NOVA - Official Website | How Cells Divide
Explore the stages of two types of cell division, mitosis and meiosis, and how these processes compare to one another.
Mitosis and Meiosis
In this cell division exercise, you drag and drop chromosomes to demonstrate your knowledge of the difference between mitosis and meiosis.
Metaphase - Stages of Mitosis - Online Biology Dictionary
During metaphase -- the second stage of mitosis -- the chromosomes, guided by the spindle fibers , line up in the middle of the dividing cell.
Meiosis Interactive - CELLS alive
Meiosis is important in assuring genetic diversity in sexual reproduction. Use this interactive animation to follow Meiosis I (reduction division) and Meiosis II in a continuous sequence or stop at any stage and review critical events.
