The Cell

The cell is the functional, biological, and structural unit of all organisms. Each person has about 100 trillion cells in their body that contains the genetic information that is needed to make a human being. The cell is a membrane structure with polysaccharides, nucleic acids, proteins and bimolecular bodies. In the human body, there are several different kinds of cells that each serve a different purpose in the body, but each cell has 32 pairs of chromosomes in the nucleus. The cell of the nervous system is the neuron which transmits information by chemical and electric signaling.
