Summary

In the lab exercise related to Mitosis, we view various slides containing cells undergoing Mitosis. We viewed 2 different specimens; a slide of an onion root tip and a slide of Ascaris eggs. Some of the cells are at different phases of Mitosis (Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase). We viewed it under HPO and LPO. Chromosomes were visible in both the LPO and the HPO although the spindle fibers were not very visible because of limitations in the light microscope. The exercise was successful because we were able to see different cells at different phases of Mitosis. We were able to discover the differences between each reaction and why Mitosis is divided into different phases. We were also able to label some of the parts in the cells undergoing mitosis. Overall, we discovered a lot of new things about Mitosis.
