Please watch the following video showing a round of mitosis:
This video was recorded using an optical microscope camera, and then overlaid with an animation graphic to
help identifying cell components and their function.
In this week’s discussion, please write five paragraphs, one for each phase of mitosis – the phases are
indicated at the bottom of the video. Each paragraph should start with a description of what each colored
element represents and followed by a description of the occurring events.
Please be specific in your description. Paraphrasing a textbook/website to indicate what happens in each
phase of mitosis is not enough. On the other hand, you should identify the cellular structures in the video by
their shape, color, and texture. Please indicate what the light blue, purple, red, yellow, green, orange, and grey
structures are. Also, please indicate where are the cell membrane and the nuclear envelope.
