Sister chromatids are basically identical copies of the chromosomes after DNA duplication prior to cell division. They are joined along their lengths through chromatid cohesion and are most tightly held together at the centromeres. Breaking this cohesion would separate the chromatids, thereby forming the chromosomes of daughter cells.
Sister chromatids are separated from each other.
