Standard: 2.6 Describe the cell cycle and the process of mitosis. Explain the role of mitosis in the formation of new cells, and its importance in maintaining chromosome number during asexual reproduction.
The illustration below represents a cell that is entering mitosis.
- Identify one function of mitosis.
- What happened in this cell during the S phase in preparation for division? Describe the evidence that supports your answer.
- Describe the end products that will be formed when this cell completes mitosis (i.e. describe how the news cells will look different from the cell above).
