chromosome DNA in a cell is organized into these. Copying chromosomes in cell division ensures an exact copy of the parent.
binary fission cell division in bacteria or prokaryotic single celled organisms.
Homologous chromosomes Chromosomes that have the same sequence of genes and the same structure. Lined up in pairs.
Phases of Eukaryotic Multicellular Cell Cyle Interphase, Mitosis, and Cells split into to two cells
chromatids During interphase, the cell grows and copies its organelles and chromosomes. The two copies are known as this
Centromere Chromatids are held together at this region.
Mitosis in eukaryotic multicellular cells, a process of cell division that forms two new nuclei each which has the same number of chromosomes
Four Stages of Mitosis (not including Interphase and Cytokinesis) Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase
Cytokinesis the division of the cytoplasm of a cell
