How is DNA Organized into Chromosomes? - Structure & Function

1. How is DNA Organized into Chromosomes? - Structure & Function

Explore the structure of chromosomes and see how DNA fits inside the nucleus of the cell. In this lesson, you'll learn about histones, chromatin and nucleosomes.

Parts of a Chromosome & Their Roles

2. Parts of a Chromosome & Their Roles

Learn all about chromosomes, including the different parts of a chromosome and the types of chromosomes in diploid organisms like humans. Learn the vocab used with chromosomes.

How is DNA Packaged? - Chromosome Condensation & Karyograms

3. How is DNA Packaged? - Chromosome Condensation & Karyograms

Learn how DNA packaging makes it possible to fit approximately seven feet of DNA inside a single cell. You'll see how chromosome condensation helps cells get ready for cell division.

What is Mitosis? - Definition, Stages & Function

4. What is Mitosis? - Definition, Stages & Function

Every day your body cells are dividing using a process called mitosis. This allows you to grow and replace damaged or worn out cells. Learn about the stages of mitosis: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase.

Mitotic Spindle: Definition, Formation & Function

5. 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

6. 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.
