During cell division, dividing cells enter a complex and highly regulated series of events, the cell cycle, that result in the generation of two identical daughter cells. The actual division phase that results in the division of the cell is called the M phase which involves mitosis (division of nuclear content) and cytokinesis (division of the cytoplasm). The rest of the time cells spend in a phase called interphase that involves duplication of cellular content particularly genomic DNA. Interphase is further divided into G1 phase, S phase, and G2 phase.
