Mitosis is the process of cell division, where one parent cell divides to produce two genetically identical daughter cells. This process is vital in growth and tissue repair. 
The reason that tissue from the fetal stage is helpful in studying mitosis is because mitosis is continuously and rapidly occurring in this phase of life in humans. The high rate of mitosis is due to the need for the fetus to grow rapidly and develop the necessary parts for it to be born.
