Cell Cycle, Mitosis and Meiosis

If a cell is unable to regulate the cell cycle, wild cell growth may occur, leading to cancer. Learners explore the cell cycle, using mitosis and meiosis to create new cells. Learners walk, simply, through each phase of the cell cycle: Mitosis, G1, S, G2, and back to Mitosis. The narrator explains how cells know when to divide via proteins and walks viewers through the cell cycle again in greater depth.
