They replicate their DNA during interphase.

Cells do not replicate "In DNA". Cells replicate their DNA during the process of cell division.

DNA isn't replicated during meiosis. Meiosis produces four daughter cells, each with the haploid number of chromosomes.

Chromosomes replicate when DNA replicates during the S phase (synthesis) of of the cell cycle.

So that each of the daughter cells formed during mitosis will have an identical copy of the DNA.

During meiosis, the chromosome number doubles because the cells replicate their DNA and split into two cells in meiosis I and in meiosis II, they replicate DNA and split once again, to form four cells.

If the DNA did not replicate, daughter cells would not be formed.

During interphase (more specifically the S-stage), the chromosomes are duplicated.

During the process of mitosis, cells replicate DNA during the interphase cycle.

In Mitosis, DNA replication begins in stage 3 after the DNA has grown, it begins to split. It then splits and replicates into two cells, where it continues to replicate.

Yes. The DNA is replicated during interphase before prophase I.

By being a part of chromosomes.

They do this so that the daughter cells may have identical DNA copies after mitosis.

DNA replication occurs during the S stage of interphase. Interphase is the stage between two mitotic or meiotic divisions. It can be slpit into three stages:G1, S and G2. During G1 (gap 1), cells grow and build up ATP on preparation for DNA replication. During the S (synthesis) phase the DNA is replicated. During the G2 phase the cell prepares itself for the process of cell division (mitosis or meiosis).

cells must copy their DNA to replicate

It is important for The creation of new cells.

so that there will be two sets of DNA ... one for each new cell. If the DNA doesnt replicate one new cell would have no DNA. and cells need DNA.

DNA must replicate itself before mitotic cell division so that the two new daughter cells have the same amount of DNA, and identical DNA.

The DNA is replicated in the stage of the cell cycle called interphase. Interphase is the first and the longest phase of the cell cycle. Also during interphase, the centrioles get copied.

Before a cell can reproduce, it must first replicate, or make a copy of, its DNA.This is so that when it divides, each of the daughter cells will receive a copy of the DNA.

Assuming you mean prokaryotic cells... Many viruses replicate use DNA or RNA in their genetic structure. Prokaryotic cells replicate by translating their DNA into RNA and then transferring it back into DNA. Many viruses hook into this system and use the prokaryotic replication to make copies of their own DNA or RNA. Otherwise, many viruses replicate within prokaryotic cells in a parasitic relationship, using the genetic material, energy and parts of the cell to replicate their own genetic material and multiply or just to hide until they are ready to replicate.

When cells divide, the new cells produced must have a full set of genes in order to function correctly. Genes are made of DNA so it is necessary to replicate (copy) the DNA before the cell divides.

It is necessary so that when they perform mitosis or meiosis the daughter cell(s) will have their own DNA from the paternal cells that replicated the DNA.

the DNA replicates before mitosis begins

During interphase the DNA is in loose form. It makes the chromatin inside the nucleus. The chromatin allow access to RNA and DNA polymerases that transcribe and replicate DNA.

no nucleus therefore no dna to replicate
