Vocabulary Term Details


Definition (

Amitosis is the process by which a cell directly separates, not to be confused with mitosis. Amitosis divides relatively simply, as the nucleus and cytoplasm are directly cut in two. Unlike regular mitosis, no spindles or the formation and appearance of chromosomes are involved in amitosis. (Wikipedia)
