Chromatin; thin, twisted thread of a loose combination of DNA and proteins that is present during interphase.
Chromatid; rod-shape that are one half of a duplicated chromosome.

Centromere; region of condensed chromosome that looks pinched; where spindle fibers attach during meiosis and mitosis.
Cytokinesis; is the division of the cytoplasm.
Centrioles; small cylinder-shaped organelle made of protein tubes arranged in a circle; aids mitosis.
Daughter nuclei; the two nuclei that results from the division of a single nucleus.
Clone; genetically identical copy of a single gene or an entire organism.
Diploid (number); the number of chromosomes present in the body cells of an organism.
Asexual reproduction; there is no difference in this reproduction and is needed only one parent.
Interphase; is the resting phase which occurs between mitotic cycles, the cell grows and replicates here.
