The cell

Definition: It the basic units of structure &function
.in the living organisms

It is the.smallest living component of biological systems
R. Hooke (1665): described tiny square boxes of a
.thin slice of cork called them cells
Leeuwenkoek (1675): described the 1st living
.cells
Brown (1831): described the presence of a
central body in each cell & called it the
.Schleiden
nucleus (1838): show allplants are composed
.of cells (1839): show allanimals are composed
Schwaan
of cells ++ animal cell lacks cell wall that
.found in plant cell

protoplasm Virchow (1855):show all cells come from .of DNA which is hereditary material Combined work of scientists :cell theory :It states .pre. existing cells by cell division Watson & Crick (1953):develop the model .
