BC: Thats what the cell cycle does!

FC: Cell Cycle

1: What is the cell cycle? | The cell cycle is a process in which a cell grows and divides to create a copy of itself. Some orangisms reproduce through the cell cycle and in complex multicellular organisms, the cell cycle is used to allow the organism to grow and to reproduce worn out cells.

2: Interphase | During interphase, a cell increase in mass, replicates its DNA, and prepares prophase.

4: Prophase | It is when the loose DNA starts to gather to form chromatid, the DNA copies itself, the spindle fibers start to form, and the cell prepares itself for cell division.

6: Metaphase | The duplicated chromosomes become aligned in the center of the cell, spindle fibers attach themselves to the centromere of the chromosomes.

8: Anaphase | The stage of mitosis in which the duplicated sets of chromosomes separate and two indentical groups move to opposite poles of the cell.

10: Telophase | A nuclear membrane re-forms around each new group of chromosomes.
