Interphase

Science / Genetics / Interphase: The period in the cell cycle when dna is replicated in the nucleus: followed by mitosis.

Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)

Science / Genetics / Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH): A physical mapping approach that uses fluorescein tags to detect hybridization of probes with metaphase chromosomes and with the less- condensed somatic interphase chromatin. MORE

Premature Chromosome Condensation (PCC)

Science / Genetics / Premature Chromosome Condensation (PCC): A method of studying chromosomes in the interphase stage of the cell cycle. MORE

S Phase

Science / Biology / S Phase: That period of interphase when new DNA is synthesized as part of replication of the chromatin. MORE

Mitosis

Science / Biology / Mitosis: The division of the cells nucleus and nuclear material of a cell; consists of four stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase. Cell xeroxing. Mitosis occurs only in eukaryotes. The DNA of th MORE

Chromatin

Science / Biology / Chromatin: A complex of DNA and protein in eukaryotic cells that is dispersed throughout the nucleus during interphase and condensed into chromosomes during meiosis and mitosis. MORE

Cell Cycle

Science / Biology / Cell Cycle: The sequence of events from one division of a cell to the next; consists of mitosis (or division) and interphase. MORE
