Mitosis is the process of chromosomes dividing into two daughter cells, i.e. creating two nuclei. Note that the two cells are identical diploid cells that are copies of the original one.

During a wound, skin cells will constantly replicate themselves through mitosis to make more copies of themselves, ultimately creating more skin to cover our wound. Still, we can still see that it takes some time, usually a few days, for a small wound to cover up.
