In the human body, mitosis occurs in the nucleus of the body's normal cells (the somatic cells). It does not occur in gamete cells (cells that are a part of reproduction). More »

In plants, the cellular structures involved in producing more cells are the nuclei, which divide in a process known as mitosis. These structures, considered to be the control centers of the cell, contain the genetic info... More » Science Biology

Euglena gracilis reproduce through a process called mitosis. In order to complete this process, they must be exposed to the right temperature and must be well-fed. Once a Euglena gracilis completes mitosis, it will split... More »

Classification, or taxonomy, is the process of identifying, naming and categorizing living things based on their physical and biological characteristics. According to the Natural History Museum, scientists believe there ... More »
