The life of a cell, consisting of growth and division phases.
The ceasing of cell division, usually causing a state similar to G1.
The 'resting phase' of the cell cycle, consisting of G1, S, and G2.
Usually the longest part of the cell cycle, cells in arrest enter a state similar to this one for life.
The cell cycle phase during which the genes in the nucleus are replicated.
The entire complex of genes for an organism.
Thousands of genes attached together in a linear sequence
A special class of proteins that complex with DNA and give it protection and structure
A structural feature of chromosomes that attaches chromatids, is usually near the center of the chromosome.
Each end of a chromosome is capped by one of these structures
