Mitosis and the cell cycle
Content objectives
1. Describe the importance and role of mitosis in living organisms
2. Describe the structure of genetic material in a chromosome
3. Describe the major events in the cell cycle
4. Describe the role of the nuclear envelope, chromosomes, and mitotic spindle
in each stage of mitosis
5. Define cancer and give the characteristics of cancer cells
