Cell cycle: A series of events that take place during the division of cells as they reproduce and multiply. The cycle includes phases such as prophase, metaphase, etc. Interphase: The longest phase of a cell cycle as the cell spends about ninety percent of the time in this phase. Consists of G1, S, and G2 phase. When the cell is in interphase and not dividing, the chromatin is threadlike and not condensed. Mitosis: Mitosis consists of the actual dividing of the nucleus and is a continuous process. G1 phase: This is a period of intense growth and biochemical activity. G2 phase: The phase in which the cell continues to grow an to complete preparations for cell division. S phase: stands for the synthesis or replication of DNA.
