Replication The action of copying or reproducing something.
Chromatin is a macromolecule made up of DNA or RNA and proteins.
Chromatid is one-half of two identical copies of a replicated chromosome.
Chromosome They carry the genetic information. Chromosomes are made up of DNA and protein combined as chromatin
Centromere is the structure in a chromosome that holds together the two chromatids
Cytokinesis the cytoplasmic division of a cell at the end of mitosis or meiosis,bringing the separation into two daughter cells
Centrioles a small cell organelle seen near the nucleus in the cytoplasm of most eukaryotic cells
