the cell grows, prepares to divide
interphase
chromatin condenses into chromosomes, membrane disappears and centriols move to opposite ends of cell
prophase
spindle fibers attach to centromere, sister chromatids line up in the middle
metaphase
spindle fibers shorten, sister chromatids pulled to opposite ends of cells
anaphase
two membranes reform around separated chromatids, spindle fibers disappear
telophase
cytoplasm splits to make 2 daughter cells that are identical
cytokinesis
cell divison process that makes gametes
meosis
divison for most cells, creates 2 daughter cells
mitosis
amount of complete chromosome sets that most cells have
two
amount of chromosomes in human body
fortysix
same chromsomes from each set
homologous
any cell with 2 complete sets of chromosomes
diploid
cell with only 1 complete set of chromosomes
haploid
body cells
somaticcells
sex cells
gametes
