Journey into the Cell
Take a journey into the cell to find out about prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Prokaryotes are single-celled organisms that are the earliest and most primitive forms of life on earth.
Learn about the structures and organelles that can be found in typical plant cell.
The cell membrane is a thin semi-permeable membrane that surrounds the cell's cytoplasm, enclosing its contents.
Explore the structure and function of the nucleus in eukaryotic cells.
Mitochondria are the cell's power producers. They convert energy into forms that are usable by the cell.
Ribosomes are cell organelles that consist of RNA and proteins. They are responsible for assembling the proteins of the cell.
The endoplasmic reticulum is a network of tubules and flattened sacs that serve a variety of functions in the cell.
The Golgi complex, also called the Golgi apparatus, is a membranous structure found in plant and animal cells. It processes, sorts, and generates molecules necessary for proper cell function.
Explore the structure and function of the cytoskeleton in animal cells.
Explore the structure and function of eukaryotic lysosomes.
Explore the structure and function of eukaryotic peroxisomes.
Cilia and Flagella
Explore the structure and function of the movers of a eukaryotic cell, cilia and flagella.
Organelles are tiny cellular components that perform specific tasks within a cell. Examples of organelles include mitochondria, ribosomes, and chloroplasts.
