Name Instructor Course Date Mitosis and the mitotic cell cycle Abstract This essay is a lab report of the mitosis and the mitotic cell cycle experiment. The experiment was aimed at determining the mitosis phase with the most number of cells as well as the quickest and fastest phases of mitotic cell division. The experiment was based on the hypothesis that interphase would consist of the most number of cells as much of the time taken during mitosis is at this phase. To achieve this, the experiment involved specimen from two actively dividing parts, that is, an onion root tip and a whitefish blastula. Each specimen was observed under a microscope, pictures taken and resulted tabulated for analysis. From the results, it could be concluded that the hypothesis was true as interphase constituted the largest amount of cells and was the longest phase of mitosis. Introduction Growth and reproduction are one of the most basic and essential properties of living things as it is the manner in which they reproduce. Eukaryotes reproduce via mitosis, a process involving four phases of cell division. Mitosis and the mitotic cell division, the subject of our previous laboratory experiment. The main objective of this experiment was to determine the rate of growth of cells in the four phases of mitosis, determine the phase with the majority number of cells at a particular time, as well as the quickest phase of mitosis. The experiment consisted of two slides, an onion root cell and an animal cell, each of which was observed by a microscope. The number of cells and the average time of each phase was recorded. The tabulated results were analyzed so as to infer regarding the main
