Name and describe the cell division process in human tissue cells

The process of cell division in human tissue cells is called mitosis. Before the cell begins to divide, it grows and duplicates all the sub-cellular structures like ribosomes and mitochondria. Inside the nucleus, the DNA replicates to produce two copies of each chromosome. The two sets of chromosomes are then pulled to opposite sides of the cell and the cytoplasm and cell membrane then divide and split into two identical daughter cells.
