Interphase
Cell is doing normal cell functions

DNA is copied in this phase.

The cell spends most of its life in this phase.


DNA is stored as chromatin.


Prophase
DNA turns from chromatin into chromosomes.

Centrioles and spindle fibers form.

Nucleus disappears to allow chromosomes to move around the cell.


The longest phase of mitosis.


Metaphase
Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell.



Anaphase
Chromosomes are pulled apart by centrioles and spindle fibers to opposite sides of the cell.



Telophase
Centrioles and spindle fibers disappear.

A nucleus forms around each group of chromosomes in the cell. There are two nuclei in the cell.


Chromosomes will turn back into chromatin.


Cytokinesis
The cell divides its cytoplasm forming two cells.
