Cell Cycle and Cell Division

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Cells, as the fundamental unit of living organisms, also have a life cycle. The cell cycle is a series of phases a cell undergoes to reach division into a new generation of cells and perpetuate its genetic material. Each phase encapsulates different processes required to ensure the daughter cells are well equipped to begin their own cycles after division.

In this course, the student will be given a walkthrough of the phases of the cell cycle and all the processes that take place during each one, finishing with a discussion of diploid and haploid cell division.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology and chemistry.

Didn't expect this.
By Talwinder M. on 15. September 2022 for Telophase and Cytokinesis – Mitosis

lack of information no explanation ,its like you are reading headings. and the quiz questions are poorly made.

Could be better
By Oji O. on 26. May 2022 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

There are mistakes in the video and they make the material more confusing than it should be.

Thank you

I understood very well the topics. I learned things I didn't before in school

I get it NOW!

FINALLY! I get replicated homologous chromosomes! Professor Cornwall cleared up a haze I had about this point for years in 3 seconds. I don't understand why there are not more people who emphasis the difference between homologous and replicated homologous chromosomes. Thank you Professor Cornwall.
