Here are  some of the questions we’ll be answering in this section:

What is the cell cycle?

What happens in each of the four stages of mitosis?

Why can’t eukaryotes just divide by binary fission like prokaryotes do? Watch this great video.

What does mitosis have to do with cancer?

Again, we’ll use this presentation (thanks to Mr Taylor in Indonesia).  We will also do an online simulation of a lab that allows us to identify the various stages of mitosis in onion root tip cells.
