mitosis
How was it discovered...
The process where a single cell divides
Definition
Mitosis was discovered by Walther Flemming

He was a scientist and one of the first to devote his time to cytology, the study of chromosomes

Flemming used aniline dyes, to visualize the threadlike material as the cells divide. Much of what we know today about mitosis originated with Flemming's observations. He saw that chromosomes were "doubled" when they appeared in prophase, and "solved" the problem of chromosomal partitioning between mother and daughter cells.
