Introduction Mitosis is cell division that completes itself in a series of phases, Interphase, Prophase, Prometaphase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase and Cytokinesis. In this division the nucleus of somatic and single celled organisms divides into two daughter nuclei. These two nuclei have the same number of chromosomes and genes as the parent cell. In multicellular organisms nuclear division is called Meiosis, in which certain cells in the ovaries or testes divide twice, but the chromosomes only replicate once. This occurs in preparation for sexual reproduction, meiosis contributes to the genetic variation that is important in sexual reproduction. Purpose The purpose of the experiment is to allow the students to readily identify the different phases of mitosis. So readily that they are able to identify them looking through a microscopic lens.
