    The easiest way to study mitosis is simple microscopy. Usually scientists use rapidly dividing root tips and make sections and place them on a slide. The preparations can be viewed and the various stages of cell division can be seen. By switching to higher powers you can even see the granular DNA (called chromatin) seen in cells during interphase. Also, the use of different stains will ...
