The eukaryotic cell at interphase Chromosomes are contained inside the nucleus.

The eukaryotic cell division cycle G1 ( gap 1 ): cell growth S-phase ( synthesis ): DNA replication G2 ( gap 2 ): cell growth Mitosis : cell division Interphase : G1 + S + G2 cell may exit the division cycle at G1 and go into G0 to become a non-dividing cell at the end of mitosis and during G1: each chromosome consists of a single DNA molecule after S-phase and during G2: each chromosome consist of two DNA molecules (two sister chromatids )

DNA in the eukaryotic nucleus Chromatin : fibers of decondensed DNA occurs during nondivisional phases of the cell cycle Chromosome : before DNA replication : a single molecule of DNA following DNA replication in preparation for cell division : chromosomes consist of two sister chromatids , which contain identical DNA sequences

DNA in the eukaryotic nucleus Prior to cell division, the chromatin condenses into visible chromosome due to the tightening of interactions between DNA and chromatin proteins (histones ).
