Cell biology research has played a crucial role in understanding human health and disease, and has the potential to solve some global problems by providing, for example, new sources of energy or food. This book begins with a brief discussion of some of the current theories about the origins and evolution of cells, before exploring the diversity of current-day cell types and their fundamental structure and organisation. The basis of cell diversity is the genetic material, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and the role of DNA in determining the characteristics of cells. Their inheritance from one generation to another is also examined in this book. The book refers to the BBC programme - Cell: The spark of life; which is not available. However activities in the book can be carried out without it.
