The Cell Cycle Animation
Read the Fine Print
Rating

During development from stem to fully differentiated, cells in the body alternately divide (mitosis) and "appear" to be resting (interphase). This sequence of activities exhibited by cells is called the cell cycle. Watch this animation to learn more about each of the stages in the cell cycle: interphase, gap 0, gap 1, S Phase, gap 2, and M phase.
