Cell Cycle

Cell cycle The cell cycle, or cell-division cycle, is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication that produces two daughter cells.
Interphase Interphase is the phase of the cell cycle in which the cell spends the majority of its time and performs the majority of its purposes including preparation for cell division.
Sister chromatid Sister chromatids are generated when a single chromosome is replicated into two copies of itself, these copies being called sister chromatids.
Centromere The centromere is the part of a chromosome that links sister chromatids. During mitosis, spindle fibers attach to the centromere via the kinetochore. Centromeres were first defined as genetic loci that direct the behavior of chromosomes.
Mitosis Mitosis is the process, in the cell cycle, by which a cell duplicates into two genetically alike daughter cells. In mitosis, chromosomes in the cell nucleus are separated into two identical sets of chromosomes, each in its own nucleus.
Cytokinesis Cytokinesis is the process in which the cytoplasm of a single eukaryotic cell is divided to form two daughter cells.
Daughter cell One of the two or more cells formed in the division of a parent cell.
Cell differentiation In developmental biology, cellular differentiation is the process by which a less specialized cell becomes a more specialized cell type.
Stem cell Embryos formed during the blastocyst phase of embryological development (embryonic stem cells) and Adult tissue (adult stem cells).
Tissue An aggregate of cells in an organism that have similar structure and function
Organ Biology A differentiated part of an organism, such as an eye, wing, or leaf, that performs a specific function.
Organ system A group of organs that work together to carry out a particular task.
