Overview

The cell theory is the guiding doctrine about cells and living organisms. Proposed almost 200 years ago, it states that living organisms are made up of one or more cells and that growth and development results from the division and differentiation of cells. This makes the cell the basic structural unit of life. Today, after years of testing and debate, scientists almost universally accept this scientific concept. Readers will gain an understanding of the cell theory by tracing the history of its development, from the discovery of the cell through the investigations used to prove its accuracy.
