What is mitosis?

Mitosis is the process by which cells divide and replicate themselves. It is how organisms (like humans) grow. During mitosis one cell (the parent cell) splits into two daughter cells which are identical copies of the parent cell. They are identical because the genetic information (or DNA) in the parent cell's nucleus is replicated (copied) before the cell divides.
