The Cell Cycle And Mitosis Trivia Quiz!

Do you believe you are an expert on the cell cycle and mitosis? The cell cycle or cell-division cycle is the series of events that occur in a cell that causes it to separate into two daughter cells. These events include the duplication of its DNA and some of its organelles. The mitotic phase is complex and highly regulated. This quiz will demonstrate your knowledge of the cell cycle.
