As you may know, all living things around you, including yourself, are made up of cells. Furthermore, all cells have what’s known as a “cell membrane”. Technically, the cell membrane is a biological membrane that separates the interior of all cells from the...

All living things are composed of cells. Cells are the fundamental units of life. While there are organisms with only one cell in their body (e.g. amoeba), multicellular organisms such as humans consist of millions and millions of cells. The outer layer or membrane...
Cell growth and division
By: Jeffrey Graf
Cell growth and division is a highly regulated process that is known formally as the cell cycle. Regulation of the cell cycle is the foundation of cancer research. By the most basic definition, cancer is a loss of control of the regulation of the cell...
Compare and contrast: Plant and animal cells
By: Robert Hoglund
The building blocks of life, cells, function differently within plants and animals. They have some similar components, but a few different ones as well. Regardless, each cell has the required structural elements necessary to complete its purpose. First, animal and plant cells have many things...

Both plant and animal cells are eukaryotic, meaning their genetic material is enclosed within a nuclear envelope. They also share many organelles in common, including a cell membrane, mitochondria, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes, and Golgi apparatus. Both animal and plant cells are aerobic, meaning they...
Compare and contrast: Plant and animal cells
By: Dr Pandula Siribaddana
All living organisms are made up of cells, which may appear in different shapes, sizes, arrangements and structures. At the same time, these cells may also adapt themselves to the organisms living environment as well as to its functional requirements. These adaptations are rather prominent...

How to introduce a transgene into a plant cell? There are several techniques to introduce a transgene into a plant cell. This can be done by gene bombardment, electroporation or by using a technique invented by nature: Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated gene transfer. Integration site of...

The cell is the most basic and elementary form of life. Every living thing is comprised of or is a cell; therefore the study of cellular biology is fundamental to understanding biology in general. Scientists have discovered that there are in fact two basic types...
Genetic food modification: Animals
By: Christyl Rivers
Has the world gone Franken-crazy? More genetic modification is done with food crops than animals. However, animal modification is very real and perhaps not as controversial as gen-mod plants, simply because it is not as well known. Public outcry is a serious foe to those...

Whether it's gaining or losing body mass, the two may appear to be at opposite ends of the spectrum, but the science of both still deals with basic factors like lifestyle choices/habits, diet, exercise and managing stress levels. Body mass is comprised of fat, muscle...
