Cell biology is the study of cells, including their structure, function, communication, signaling, and cell cycle and division.
- It involves examining both single-celled and multicellular organisms and has applications in fields such as genetics, molecular biology, cytochemistry, and biochemistry.
- Over the years, advancements in technology have made it possible to study cells in greater detail, using techniques such as imaging to observe smaller cellular organelles.
- Cell biology is important for understanding the body as a whole, as well as answering complex questions about the relationship between cellular networks, the evolutionary relationship between genomes, and the complexity of biomolecules in different living organisms.
- It is also a good place to do research on single cells because they are easy to change and watch.
