Caption: Mitosis. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a dividing cell during the telophase stage of mitosis. Mitosis is the cycle of replication and division by which new body cells are formed. The chromosomes of the parent cell are duplicated and pair up along a microtubular protein apparatus known as the spindle. They then separate and move to opposite poles of the cell before the cytoplasm pinches and the cell divides, as seen here. When the cell has split, two identical daughter cells, each with a full complement of genetic material, are formed. Magnification unknown.
