Mitosis refers to the process of cell division that occurs in most higher life forms. During interphase, all of the genetic material within the cell is replicate Then, the strands that contain the genetic material, which are known as chromatin, become compacted and condense Centrosomes then move to opposite ends of the cells, after which the nucleus contained in the original single cell disintegrates.

Immediately before the chromatin becomes compacted:

the genetic material in the cell is copie
