In this chapter we introduce the cell concept and describe how cells are viewed using microscopes. We introduce eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Animals and plants are each composed of a number of distinct tissues. Viruses are not cells but are composed of the same building blocks and use cellular machinery to reproduce.
