Cell Cycle, Mitosis, and Meiosis

BiochemieBiologische GrundlagenZellzyklus

Cell reproduction is based on the principle of cell division. In order to divide a cell into two identical daughter cells, all of the genetic material and all cell components must be duplicated. Animated illustrations demonstrate the cell cycle responsible for this, as well as illustrating cell division by mitosis and meiosis.
