  1. During mitosis chromatin condenses into visible chromosomes (sister chromatides) Remember that chromatin/DNA replication occures during interphase, but doesn’t become visible until the phase of mitosis- which is prophase.

    Within Meiosis, it’s visible during Prophase1 and Prophase 2

  2. I know because I have my anatomy book right in front of me, but Chromatin is only found during interphase which is before mitosis actually begins, or during telophase, the last phase where the chromosomes unwind to become the chromatin fibers once again. Hope this helps, and good luck in school!

  3. Chromatin is always there, in the nucleus. But, it is visible only during interphase when becomes condensed. Preparing for cell division – mitosis. Was this sufficient info?

  4. the Chromatins are found in the cell cycle all the way starting with the interphase. i was gonna say prophase but i just found my papers from last year. so yeah have fun
    BLESSINS…,

  5. Chromatin is DNA that is “packaged” with histones and other proteins as DNA is never found as a naked molecule in animal or plant cell nuclei. Chromatin is ALWAYS present in the cell. EIther as disorganized filaments during interphase, or condensed into chromosomes, during mitosis. If you stain a cell with special fluorescent dyes, such as DAPI or Hoerscht, you can visualize it.
    When cells divide, the chromatin is seen as distinct chromosomes, duplicating, with an equal partition of each set of chromosomes then traveling to each of the new daughter cells. When the new chromosomes reach the new cells, they begin to un-ravel into long thin extended 10 nm. (100 A.) microfibrils called euchromatin or condensed coiled masses called heterochromatin.
