Cellular Division

8th Grade Life Science

DNA The genetic material in a cell's nucleus. It is the "blue print" for life.
Chromosomes A threadlike structure of the genetic information (DNA) found in cells.
Interphase Part of the cell cycle when the cell is not dividing. The cell is getting prepared for the upcoming cell division process.
Cell Cycle The life cycle of an eukaryotic cell can be divided into 3 stages: interphase, mitosis, and cytokinesis.
Mitosis In eukaryotic cells this is part of the cell cycle where the nucleus divides resulting in 2 nuclei that are identical to the original nucleus. Both cells have the same DNA (clones). Needed for growth & repair.
Cytokinesis Is the last step in cell division where the new cell that is formed creates its own cell membrane boundary or cell wall.
Meiosis In eukaryotic cells this type of cell division is used for reproduction. The end results creates gamete cells with half DNA.
Gametes Are what we call sex cells that contain half the parents DNA.
