In the ____ phase of the cell cycle DNA is synthesized.
The cell cycle is a series of events that a cell goes through as it grows and divides. It is divided into four phases: G1, S, G2, and M.
- G1 phase: The cell grows and prepares for DNA replication.
- S phase: DNA is synthesized.
- G2 phase: The cell continues to grow and prepares for mitosis.
- M phase: Mitosis and cytokinesis occur, resulting in the division of the cell into two daughter cells.
