The cell cycle or cell-division cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication (replication) that produces two daughter cells. In prokaryotes which lack a cell nucleus, the cell cycle occurs via a process termed binary fission. The cell cycle, most prominently called as cell-division refers to the series of events which take place inside a cell during the time of cell division. During cell division, a cell divides and then duplicates i.e forms its copies. In prokaryotic cells, which lack nucleus, the cell cycle occurs by a process of binary fission. The cell cycle consists of two stages viz. a: Mitosis and b: Meiosis. Mitosis refers to the division of all body cells except germ cells while in meiosis the division of the germ cells takes place. During mitosis, the chromosome number remains the same as that of the parent cell while during meiosis, the chromosome number is reduced to half the number of the parent cell.
