Mitosis Quizzes & Trivia

Let’s talk biology, shall we? Specifically, let’s look at the topic of mitosis – the type of cell division which results in both daughter cells possessing the same number of chromosomes as the parent – and we’ll also look at the cell cycle, the name given to the series of events whereby a cell’s DNA is duplicated, and cell division occurs. What can you tell us? Take the quiz to find out!
