This is the process of mitosis.


Mitosis, or cell replication, is a process that involves a single 'parent' cell forming two identical 'daughter' cells. Mitosis is necessary for growth, asexual reproduction, cellular repair, and more.

Mitosis has four phases .

  1. Interphase
  2. Metaphase
  3. Anaphase
  4. Telophase

Essentially, mitosis causes a single cell to split into two cells.
