The Cell Cycle
1

Reproduction
• Asexual Reproduction:
– Involves only 1 organism
– New individual is genetically identical to
parent-clone
• Single celled organisms
–- binary fission: cell divides in 2

2

Multicelled organisms:
• Budding
• Plant propagation
• Parthenogenesis

3

Reproduction
• Sexual Reproduction:
– Involves 2 parental organisms
– New individual is different from either
parent
– Leads to greater genetic diversity

4

• Sexual Reproduction:

5

Chromosome Structure
• Chromatin: DNA and protein in long, thin
thread-like, invisible form

6

Chromosome Structure
• Chromosomes: Condensed chromatin
that appear right before cell division
– Sister chromatids- contain exact copies of
DNA– Centromere- protein “button” holds
chromatids together

7

Chromosome Structure

8

The Cell Cycle
• The time it takes from 1 cell division to
the next
• Varies in length of time depending on
cell type
