Dhaval Rana AP Biology October 11, 2009 Observing the Cell Cycle in Plant and Animals Cells Abstract The objective of the lab is to see how long the phases of mitosis are and how long cell spends in each stage To witness this the observer must see which phase is common in the cell and also find out the time of the phases by calculating the percent of each phase. If the number of cells in the phase is calculated then the amount of time that each cell spends in each pass can be estimated Hypothesis The amount of time cell spends in each phase can be estimated if the number of cells in each phase is calculated. Introduction Cell division is the division of the cytoplasm and the replication of the cells nucleus. There are two types of nuclear division: mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis is the process by which a eukaryotic cell separates the chromosomes in its cell nucleus into two identical sets in two daughter nuclei. It is generally followed immediately by cytokinesis, which divides the nuclei, cytoplasm,organelles and cell membrane into two daughter cells containing roughly equal shares of these cellular components. Mitosis and cytokinesis together define the mitotic (M) phase of the cell cycle - the division of the mother cell
