Dream. "Computer as an Analogy for a Cell?" Yahoo! Answers. Yahoo!, 2012. Web. 19 Mar. 2013. <http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20111020144818AAIbU4t>. Cytoplasm=Motherboard The cytoplasm is like the motherboard because it is the place where everything comes and works together as a whole. Nucleolus+Nucleoplasm=CPU socket This here is a CPU socket, which houses the CPU. The nucleolus and nucleoplasm is the liquid/base of the nucleus, transmits information. Endoplasmic Reticulum=RAM (memory) The endoplasmic reticulum is like the memory of a computer is because the ram is thin, kinda like folded up how a ER is. It also controls what the stuff it is making, and can allow the computer or cell to multitask easily. Ribosomes=Transistors Ribosomes are like transistors because they're little protein factories working for the big picture. Golgi Apparatus=GPU First off, GPU stands for graphic processing unit and it puts what you see on your monitor. The reason why the golgi apparatus is similar to a GPU is because it's flat and it put the finishing touches on things and ships them out. In a GPU, the CPU sends the data to the GPU and then the GPU distributes it to the monitor for viewing. PIXELS Centriole=Solid State Drive A solid state drive (SSD) is like a centriole because a SSD is flash memory and is able to process quickly for the computer needs. A centriole function is organizing and part of two cellular processes. Mitochondria=PSU The mitochondria of a cell takes energy and stores it for the cell to use, just like a PSU, (power supply unit) does for a computer! Flagella=Computer Fans Flagella is a tail that moves the cell around, but the most moving object in the computer besides the dish speed of a hard drive is.. COMPUTER FANS! They cool the system, which is quite important. Cilia=keyboard Cilia are little projections outside of the cell. What sticks out outside of the computer? Keyboard keys! Cytoskelekon=Ports Tiny microtubules that make up the cell's shape and feeds it protein. Whatever is plugged into the computer will take shape inside of it and it feeds how the computer can function. Plasma Membrane=Firewall Plasma membrane is boundary between the outside world and inside. It controls the illegal trafficking and selects the right stuff. A firewall filters the computer for those viruses, trojans, and threats.
