NCERT Grade 11 Chapter 10, Cell Cycle and Cell Division is a part of Unit 3, Cell: Structure and Functions. Unit 3 is a combination of 3 chapters and holds a total weightage of 9% in the NEET examination and 15 marks in the final examination.Cell Cycle and Cell Division are very important processes in all living organisms. What is Cell Cycle? What is Cell Division? Why are these processes necessary? Answer to these questions and the events that take place behind these important processes are described in a very systematic and comprehensive manner in NCERT Grade 11 Chapter 10, Cell Cycle and Cell Division
In this chapter, students will learn about Cell Cycle, Phases of Cell Cycle, M Phase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Significance of Mitosis, Meiosis, Meiosis I, Meiosis II and Significance of Meiosis. This chapter will also enable the students to learn the difference in the Cell Cycle and Cell Division in Plant and Animal Cells. Diagrammatic presentation and detailed explanation about the changes within the cell during each of the phases of the Cell Cycle i.e., Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase and Telophase can be easily learnt through this chapter. Concepts of Cytokinesis and Karyokinesis will be introduced.
