A mathematical model, based on branching processes, is proposed to interpret BrdUrd DNA FCM-derived data. Our main interest is in determining the distribution of the G(2) phase duration. Two different model classes involving different assumptions on the distribution of the G(2) phase duration are considered. Different assumptions of the G(2) phase duration result in very similar distributions of the S phase duration and the estimated means and standard deviations of the G(2) phase duration are all in the same range.
