Part of the cell cycle is DNA replication which is covered in more detail in the ‘DNA’ video. This video covers mitosis, a type of cell division that forms identical cells, which occurs in asexual reproduction. Therefore, there is a good synoptic link with the ‘sexual and asexual reproduction and meiosis’ video. Close to the exam it is worth watching both videos together so that you can make a clear distinction between mitosis and meiosis which are often very easily confused.
