Is interphase part of mitosis?

Posted September 16, 2022


No, interphase is not part of mitosis, although both are part of the larger cell cycle.

Interphase is the cell division phase that occurs before mitosis. During interphase, the cell gets itself ready for mitosis. The mitosis phase is marked by the division of the nucleus.
