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. Materials Prepared slide of onion root tip Compound microscope Procedures 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
