A cell alternates between the interphase and the mitotic phase of the cell cycle. Interphase includes all non-dividing stages: G1, S, and G2 phases. In summary, a cell grows, continues to grow as its chromosomes are being copied, grows further and prepares for cell division, and finally cell division. Chromosomes that are in their condensed structures are called chromatin. But they can also be in their relaxed states.
State of DNA inside the cell. Based on your understanding, specify the state of DNA (chromatin or condensed chromosome) in each phase and sub-phase of the cell cycle.
G1 : _____
S : _____
G2 : _____
