What is Mitosis?
Eukaryotic cells use mitotic cell division to produce new cells. Mitosis is a process where the DNA in the nucleus is equally divided so that the two daughter cells will each get an identical copy. To help understand what happens in mitosis we have divided it it into four phases – prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. In this video I describe what happens at each phase and also show it visually.
