Observing the broad bean ( Vicia faba ), our results depicted that the highest percentage of cells were in interphase, implying that this must be the longest phase within the plant cell cycle (approximately 25 minutes). The second highest percentage of cells, from our data, was in prophase, which coincided with the results from the class (approximately 3-4 minutes). Third highest percentage of cells was found in telophase followed by anaphase and metaphase (approximately 2-3 minutes). However, prometaphase was second last for the class data and last for our data. For the onion ( Allium cepa ), the class and our data showed that the highest percentage of cells was in interphase followed by prophase (less than half the number of cells compared to interphase). As for anaphase, metaphase, and telophase, the percentage of cells in these phases of mitosis decreases in this respective order for both class and our data. Again, prometaphase deviated by being slightly higher for the class data. The whitefish blastula ( Coregonus clupeaformis ) also depicted the same data as the above organisms except that the third highest percentage of cells was found in metaphase then prometaphase, telophase and last is anaphase. This implies that after interphase and prophase the third longest phase in mitosis for animals is metaphase.

    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.
