List and describe the four main phases of mitosis.
Phase 1 is called Prophase, begins with shortening and coiling of DNA into Rod-Shaped chromosomes. Phase 2 Metaphase, chromosomes line up in the midline of the dividing cell. Phase 3 is called Anaphase, chromatids of each chromosome start moving to opposite poles of the cell. Phase 4 is telophase/cytokenisis, the chromosomes reach opposite poles of the cell, a cleavage furrow is then formed.
