Cell Division Many cells in your body are growing and dividing right now!  Cell Cycle  – the regular sequence of growth and division that cells  undergo During the cell cycle, a cell grows, prepares for division, and divides  into two new cells, which are called “daughter cells”. Each daughter  cell then begins the cell cycle again! The first stage of the cell cycle is called interphase Interphase  – the cell grows, makes a copy of its DNA, and prepares to  divide into two cells STAGE 1: INTERPHASE Growing  – the cell grows to its full size and produce structures it needs  –  the cell makes new ribosomes and produces enzymes, etc Copying DNA  – the cell makes an exact copy of the DNA in its nucleus  in a process called  replication o Replication of DNA is very important since each daughter cell  must have a complete set of DNA to survive – at the end of DNA
