What are the different phases of the cell cycle?

The cell cycle begins with interphase (G1,S G2) then follows on to mitosis and ends with cytokinesis.

G1 phase - Protein synthesis and preparation for DNA replication

S phase - DNA replication

G2 phase - Organelle replication. Protein and ATP synthesis. Preparation for mitosis.

Mitosis - multiple stages: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. 

Mitosis separates chromatids to create two identical daughter cells.

Cytokinesis -  Cytoplasm splits and separates to form to genetically identical cells.
