  • Theodor Schwann

    Theodor Schwann
    Cells are organisms and all organisms consist of one or more cells. The cell is a basic unit of life. These statments are known as the cell theory.

  • Cell Theory

    Cell Theory
    1.All known living things are made up of one or more cells.
    2.All living cells arise from pre-existing cells by division.
    3.The cell is the fundamental unit of structure and function in all living organisms.
    4.The activity of an organism depends on the total activity of independent cells.
    5.Energy flow (metabolism and biochemistry) occurs within cells.
    6.Cells contain hereditary information (DNA) which is passed from cell to cell during cell division.
    7.All cells are basically the same i
