About Simulation

  • In this simulation, you will learn about the mitosis process and its various stages.  
  • You will prepare a sample of onion cells and discover how each phase leads to the cell's successful duplication. 
  • In this interactive mitosis experiment, you will visualize the different phases of the cell division cycle and mitosis.  
  • The detailed animation of each phase will help you understand the various phases of the cell cycle.
  • In this mitosis experiment, you will study the various phases of mitosis by cutting a section of the onion root tip, staining it, and observing the cells under a microscope. 


  • This interaction creates a very realistic environment and gives you a real-life experience.
  • Every step of this biology practical, including setting up the experimental setup, dissecting the specimen, demonstrating the models, making permanent slides, and many more, is very interactive and has been simulated in a way that is very similar to what you would do in a real biology lab.

Mitosis is the process of cell division, which creates two identical daughter cells from a single parental cell. This process is also known as equational division because the total number of chromosomes is maintained during the mitotic division. The different mitosis stages are Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, and Telophase.

The interphase, also known as the resting phase, is the time when the cell prepares for mitotic division by going through an organized process of cell growth and DNA replication. The amount of DNA per cell doubled throughout the S phase time. The cells in the Quiescent stage are metabolically active but no longer proliferate unless the organism requires them to do so. The M Phase begins with nuclear division, corresponding to the separation of daughter chromosomes (karyokinesis), and finishes with cytoplasm division(cytokinesis).
