Introduction: This picture shows onion root tip cells in various stages of the cell cycle.
1,2 - interphase, 3-5 prophase, 6 - metaphase, 7 - early anaphase, 8 - anaphase, 9 - early telophase, 10 - telophase

Directions: Each group will be given a microscope slide of an onion root tip pictured below. Click on the image to enlarge and count the number of cells in interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase.
