cell cycle a series of events that take place in a cell leading to duplication of its DNA
cell division division of a cell into two daughter cells with the same genetic material
replication The process of duplicating or producing an exact copy of a cell
chromatin material that is made up of DNA and RNA that you find in chromosomes
chromatid one-half of two identical copies of a replicated chromosome
chromosome A structure in all living cells that consists of a single molecule of DNA bonded to various proteins and that carries the genes determining heredity.
centromere the middle region of a chromosome that connects the two chromatids
cytokinesis the splitting of the cytoplasm
centrioles part of the cell that turns into spindle fibers to pull apart the chromatids in metaphase
daughter nuclei two nuclei that result from the division of a single nucleus

binary fission a type of asexual reproduction wherin a cell divides giving rise to two cells.
