Mitosis
Introduction
This BioCoach activity will help you review mitosis, the process of nuclear division of eukaryotic cells to produce daughter nuclei that are genetically identical to the parent nucleus.

You will find information about the relationship of mitosis to the cell division cycle, the process of mitosis, and the relevance of mitosis to genetics. Animations show the process of mitosis in a dynamic way.

You can test your understanding of mitosis by using the Self-Quiz at the end of the module.

For comparison purposes, mitosis is the process of cell division in eukaryotes, in which the parental chromosome number is conserved in each of the daughter cells, while meiosis is a two-cell-division process in sexually reproducing eukaryotes that results in cells (typically gametes) with one-half the chromosome number of the original parental cell.
