If you are learning about the cell cycle, then you would probably need these cell cycle diagrams to help you as the reference and evaluation media after you’re done comprehending the cycle. These cell diagrams will show you the processes in a cell cycle. Brief but clear explanation is available and you are also provided the worksheets version of the diagrams. Take a tour and click on the image to save it.
A cell must must grow, copy its genetic material (DNA), and physically split into two daughter cells. This series of steps is what we called as the cell cycle. The cell cycle is a cycle, rather than a linear pathway, because at the end of each go-round, the two daughter cells can start the exact same process over again from the beginning. In eukaryotic cells, or cells with a nucleus, the stages of the cell cycle are divided into two major phases: interphase and the mitotic (M) phase.
During the mitotic phase, the replicated DNA and cytoplasmic contents are separated, and the cell divides. Meanwhile, during interphase, the cell undergoes normal growth processes while also preparing for cell division. In order for a cell to move from interphase into the mitotic phase, many internal and external conditions must be met. The three stages of interphase are called G1, S, and G2. Now for the worksheets.
