Question
Hello sir,,,how are you?

I have a question that sounds like...

We know chromosomes replicate in binary fission.But...

When chromosomes replicate in binary fission?

Answer
Hi again Shuvo
The DNA are replicated during the S phase of the cell cycle and the replication of the new daughter cells and chromosomes occurs during the mitotic phase. In case you art\e not sure about the cell cycle, after mitosis there is a G1 or gap phase followed by the S phase and then a G2  phase and back to the mitosis phase
