cytokinesis    Mitosis is the process by which a cell duplicates its genetic information (DNA), in order to generate two, identical, daughter cells.
   It is generally followed immediately by cytokinesis which divides the cytoplasm and cell membrane. This results in two identical daughter cells with a roughly equal distribution of organelles and other cellular components.
   Mitosis and cytokinesis together define the
mitotic (M) phase of the cell cycle, the division of the mother cell into two daughter cells, each with the genetic equivalent of the parent cell
