Concept 2: Mitosis and the Cell Division Cycle

Cells that are growing and dividing go through a repeating series of events called the cell division cycle (or cell cycle). During the first phase (G1), the cell grows and prepares for DNA replication, which occurs in the subsequent S phase. Further growth takes place in the G2 phase, and finally mitosis occurs in the M phase.
