This paper provides a mid-level description of cell division and duplication. The focus is on the roles by the chromosomes, centrosomes, microtubules and the kinetochores. The emphasis is on the mechanical activity and the resulting physical developments. The paper also provides, in its discussion, the harmful effects occurring when duplication procedures go awry. This often leads to unwanted duplication and possibly cancer.
