Interphase - the first stage, chromoses dupilcate and the copies remain attached to each other.
Prophase - in the nucleus chromosomes condense and become visible. The spindle forms in the cytoplasm.
Metaphase - the copied chormosomes line up in the middle of the spindle
Anaphase - chromosomes separate into two genetically identical groups and move to the opposite ends of the spindle.
Telophase - Nuclear membranes form around each of the two sets of chromosomes, the chromosomes begin to spread out and the spindle begins to break down.
Cytokinesis - The cell splits into two daughter cells each with the same number of chromosomes as the parent. In humans, such cells have 2 copies of 23 chromosomes and are called diploid.
