|the stage of the cell cycle that takes place before division occurs||interphase|
|the process by which a cell makes a copy of the DNA in its nucleus||replication|
|the stage of the cell cycle during which the cell's nucleus divides into two new nuclei and one copy of the DNA is distributed into each daughter cell||mitosis|
|a doubled rod of condensed chromatin||chromosome|
|the final stage of the cell cycle, in which the cell's cytoplasm divides, distributing the organelles into each of the two new cells||cytokinesis|
