Introduction to Cells
  1. The Cell Theory
    1. living organisms made of cells
      1. first explored: 17th century
        1. cells are the fundamental blocks of all living organisms
          1. common features of cells
            1. surrounded by membranes
              1. contains genetic information
                1. cells activities: chemical reactions catalysed by enzymes produced in cell
                  1. have own energy release sytems
                2. Unicellular organisms
                  1. consisting of only one cell
                    1. carries out all life functions
