Metaphase is the phase of mitosis where chromosomes the in the highest form. This facilitates easier alignment at the metaphase plate. This also prevents other chromosomes from interfering one another as less condensed chromosomes has thin thread like structure that can tangle with one another. More condensed form is also noted in anaphase as this allows tangle-free migration of chromosomes to opposite poles during anaphase.
Explain how the structure of a chromosome change as a cell moves from interphase to mitosis?
