Comparing Animal and Plant Cells
The cell is the fundamental structural unit of all living organisms. Cells help carry out the functions of life and together support the organism to function as a whole. Cells are divided into two main categories of eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Anim
Title: To examine an animal and cheek cell using a compound microscope
Date: 25th September 2012
Lab Partner: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
The main aim of this experiment was to prepare a wet mount of human cheek cells and a wet mount of plant cells and examine them both under a compound mi

Biology Cell Report
There are many parts of a cell, they all have specific duties, and are all
needed to continue the life of the cell. Some cells exist as single-celled
organisms that perform all of the organism's metabolism within a single cel
The Cell, the fundamental structural unit of all living organisms. Some cells are complete organisms, such as the unicellular bacteria and protozoa, others, such as nerve, liver, and muscle cells, are specialized components of multicellular organisms. In another words, without cells
Cells were discovered in 1665 by Robert Hooke when he took a piece of cork and looked at it under a microscope. Cork is made up of dead cells but you are still able to see the cells which proved to be interesting to him. He described it as being made up like bricks in a wall and these bricks he then
Cells are some of the smallest organisms around. All living things consist of cells, and yet they are invisible to the naked eye. Cells are the basic structural and functional units of life. Cells are made up of many different parts which allow them to function properly.
Plant Cells vs. Animal Cells
The plasma membrane is the outer membrane of a cell that is composed of a bilayer of phospholipids in which proteins are embedded. The plasma membrane allows certain things to enter the cell and other things not. A cell wall is a layer of material normally made up of
Plant cells have many different parts that are need to work together and function as a whole. These parts are the cell membrane which can be compared to a "Condom" due to the fact that is a very thin protective layer that lets certain substances to pass through. Cell wall is a thicke
Welcome, welcome, welcome!!! Polly said you might drop by. If you would like, I'll introduce you to some of the real characters that inhabit the wonderful world of cells.
"I'm Chloe the chloroplast. I'm a part of a plant cell. My job is to turn sunlight into sugar! Isn't that a grand job?

Internal Structure Of A Plant
PLANT CELL STRUCTURE
Plant cells are classed as eukaryotes organisms, because they have a membrane enclosed nuclei and organelles.
Here is a diagram of a plant cell;
Most chemical reactions take place here. It helps the cell maintain it’s shape.
• The study of cells is known as cytology.
• Robert Hooke discovered the cell in a cork.
• He named it so as the cork had many compartments so he named it cell which means compartment in Latin.
• Organelles : living parts of a cell
• Inclusions: non-living par
The cell is the functional basic unit of life. It was discovered by Robert Hooke and is the functional unit of all known living organisms. It is the smallest unit of life that is classified as a living thing, and is often called the building block of life. S
Eukaryotic & Prokaryotic Cells
The cell is a functional unit of all living organisms. Cells have evolved into two fundamentally different types, eukaryotic and prokaryotic, which can be distinguished on the basis of their structure and the complexity of their org
EXERCISE 1C: Determining the Water Potential of Potato Cells
Introduction: Water potential was defined above as an expression of the tendency of water to diffuse from one region to another. Water potential is a numerical value that must be determined for a given temperature and pressure. In this
The Effect of Temperature on Beet Cell Membranes and Concentration of Betacyanin Released
Membranes are an important feature of plant cells and they act as a barrier that separates the interior of the cell from the external environment (Campbell et al., 2008). Each membrane layer is
During my exploration I discovered a cell on an outlaying planet. The cell had a nucleus (where the DNA is kept), a smooth endoplasmic reticulum (the site that detoxify potentially harmful substances), a rough endoplasmic reticulum (which aids in the processing of proteins), ribosome (the site of p

Enzymes are protein, they are used to catalyse metabolisms in all organisms. They break down complex molecules and build up complex molecules from simple molecules, these two processes are catabolic reaction and anabolic reaction respectively. Enzymes are needed in these two processes to catalyse re
Plant Pigments and Photosynthesis
Most everyone knows that photosynthesis is how plants obtain their food. Estrella Mountain Community College states that, “Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some bacteria, and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, which ce
