        NOVA | Mitosis

        For an organism to grow, rebuild tissues, and reproduce, cells must divide. Every division requires replicating and then evenly dividing the cell's massive jumble of DNA. This video segment, adapted from the Interactive Secret of Life videodisc, follows the stages of mitosis, the systematic process that ensures that daughter cells formed when plant and animal cells divide get equal shares of DNA.
