Comments P.160 bottom paragraph:"Cells reproduce by passing through a mitotic cycle, in which the genetic material is replicated and two daughter cells are produced each with its own complement of DNA. The exception to this is germ cells, which halve their diploid DNA complement to produce haploid cells during a meiotic cycle prior to maturation and later fertilization. Mitosis typically is completed in 30-60 min. The intermitotic period is called interphase, and the length of this period varies from about 6 hours to very long times."
