Design of the Experiment I

Observing Mitosis Using Prepared Slides

In your laboratory, you will study and sketch the events of cell division in either plant or animal cells, using a microscope slide of cells arrested at various stages in the process of division.

To help you identify which phase of the cycle a cell is in, let's go over the features to look for in each phase.

Next let's see how the phases of division look in real cells.
