Having two of each chromosome. Diploid
The only cells that undergo meiosis. Germ Cells
The actual number of different types of chromosomes a cell possesses. Haploid
The phase most cells spend 95% of their time in. Interphase
How sperm and egg cells are created. Meiosis
The stage of mitosis where duplicated chromosomes line up along the center of the mitotic spindle. Metaphase
The first stage of mitosis when the nuclear membrane is absorbed into the cell. Prophase
Body cells. Somatic
The last stage of mitosis when the chromosomes separate and the nuclear membrane reforms. Telophase
Microtubules visible during cell division that are involved in separating chromosomes. Spindle Fibers
The mitotic process that results int he formation of sperm cells. Spermatogenesis
The mitotic process that results in the formation of egg cells. Oogenesis
Cytoplasmic division that follows the division of the nucleus. Cytokinesis
