Mitosis: Splitting Up is Complicated

Although you cannot clone yourself, the cells in your body can clone themselves, and, in fact, you wouldn't grow if they didn't! Viewers learn all about this process in a video that explains the difference between the processes of mitosis and meiosis. The narrator walks learners through each step of mitosis — interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis.
