Mitosis is the process in cell division by which the nucleus divides, typically consisting of four stages, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase, and normally resulting in two new nuclei, each of which contains a complete copy of the parental chromosomes (http://faculty.clintoncc.suny.edu/faculty/Michael.Gregory/files/Bio %20101/Bio%20101%20Laboratory/Mitosis/mitosis.htm). Mitosis is important to a living organism because the process is to replace cells that or old or damaged. Mitosis is considered asexual reproduction since one cell divides itself into two identical daughter cells. The process of mitosis is to duplicate like cells.
