The cell cycle is the sequence of events between mitotic divisions. Th e cycle is conventionally divided into G0, G1 (G stands for gap), S (s ynthesis phase during which DNA is replicated), G2 and M (mitosis). Th e sequence, as it appears in this text, is reviewed in relation to the development of living organisms from embryonic states to maturity.  See more details below
