    Importance of mitosis
    Mitosis is replicative cell division involving one nuclear division to form two genetically identical daughter cells. The consequence of mitotic division is:

    1. There will be no variation in genetic information.
    2. There will be no variation in chromosome number due to the semi-conservative replication of DNA and equal distribution of DNA.
    3. The cell divide once and two identical daughter cells are formed.
