|"Although the cell is the smallest unit of life, it is by no means simple."
Thus begins this brief-but-fascinating exploration. The opening picture is a large, full-color image of a cell. To begin, click on any of the numbered parts of the cell as they float past you on the screen. A beautiful, detailed close-up image of that cell art will appear, along with one or two paragraphs of information about it. Parts featured include the cell membrane, DNA, RNA, endoplasmic reticulum, and mitochondria, among others.
Once you have viewed a part of the cell, you will see small numbers below the photo of that part. These numbers provide a convenient way to navigate through the site sequentially, if you prefer. If you click "Explore More," you will go back to the main page.
