  • Mitosis
    • Mitosis-The division of an existing cell into two that are genetically identical.
      • Copying division of cells.
    • Uses of Mitosis
      • Growth-new cells.
      • Repair-replace dead and damaged cells.
    • Stages of Mitosis
      • 1) The chromosomes are copied and line up along the middle of the cell.
        • 2)The two copies of each chromosome split apart and move to opposite ends of the cells.
          • 3)When the cells split, each cell has two copies of the chromosomes.
            • 4)The two new cells are identical. Know as daughter cells.
