The Cell Cycle: Definition, Phases & Sequence

1. The Cell Cycle: Definition, Phases & Sequence

Learn about the dividing and non-dividing states of the cell and discover the different phases of the cell cycle, including interphase, cytokinesis, and the stages of cell division.

Mitotic Spindle: Definition, Formation & Function

2. Mitotic Spindle: Definition, Formation & Function

Condensation makes DNA ready / And microtubules hold it steady / A microtubule's a fancy rope / To move the DNA is the hope / From spindle poles they do extend / To align each chromosome in the end

Stages of Mitosis: Description & Sequence

3. Stages of Mitosis: Description & Sequence

Let's take a second look at mitosis and focus on the phases of chromosome segregation. As we concentrate on chromosomes, you'll learn the tricky dance that takes place through all five phases of mitosis.

Cytokinesis: Animal Versus Plant Cells

4. Cytokinesis: Animal Versus Plant Cells

What's a cell to do when it must divide in two? We'll explore cytokinesis and see how the process can differ in important ways when it comes to plant versus animal cells.

Embryonic and Adult Stem Cells: Uses, Origins & Properties

5. Embryonic and Adult Stem Cells: Uses, Origins & Properties

How can we grow a brand new windpipe? Or a heart? In this lesson, we'll learn about embryonic and adult stem cells and how scientists are using them to give people a new lease on life.

What Causes Cancer?

6. What Causes Cancer?

This lesson will discuss a model of cancer formation as well as some things that can cause cancer. You'll learn about initiation, promotion, and progression as well as what occurs during each step.
