Collection of living matter enclosed by a barrier that separates the cell from it's surroundings; basic unit of all forms of life.
Idea that all living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, and new cells are produced from existing cells.
Small, dense region within most nuclei in which the assembly of proteins begins.
Organism whose cells contain nuclei.
Unicelluar organism lacking nucleus.
Specialized structure that performs important cellular functions within a eukaryotic cell.
Material inside a cell membrane-NOT including nucleus.
Layer of two membranes that surrounds the nucleus of a cell.
Granular material visible within the nucleus; Consists of DNA tightly coiled around proteins
Threadlike structure within the nucleus containing the genetic information that is passed from one generation of cells to the next
