Cell cycle or the cell division is the biological process during which a cell divides for the formation of daughter cells. The complete event is carried out in multiple steps and the total time required for a cell cycle and cell division is about 24 hours.
The cell division is an important process through which a single-celled develops into a new organism.
There are two types of Cell Cycle:
Mitosis – All unicellular or Single-celled organisms including bacteria and algae, which reproduce asexually undergo mitosis process of cell division.
Meiosis – All multicellular organisms including Plants, animals, birds, and insects which reproduce sexually undergo meiosis process of cell division to create their reproductive cells. There are two types meiosis – meiosis I and meiosis II.
