Cell Information

Cells are known to be the smallest organisms in the universe. They are the basic part of the structure and function of all living things. Cells were discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. Cells emerged from the Earth at least 3.5 billion years ago.


Mitochondria is known as the power house of the cell. Nucleus is the main part of the cell. The ribosomes produce proteins. The cell wall helps protect the cell. The cell membrane allows things to travel in and out of the cell. Cytoplasm is the jelly like substance that helps the cell maintain shape and body. Chloroplast, in plant cells, creates photosynthesis and shows the "green" color in the cell.
