Cells are the starting point

All living organisms are composed of cells. A cell is a small, membrane-bound compartment that contains all the chemicals and molecules that help support an organism's life. An understanding of the structure of cells is one of the first steps in comprehending the complex cellular interactions that direct and produce life.

Cell are sometimes considered building blocks of organisms. Their our some cells that are composed of single cells. Others, Like ourselves are composed of millions of cells that work together to perform more complex functions that makes us very different from bacteria.
There are different types of cells with individual structures. Single-celled organisms have different cell structure than multi-celled organisms and plant cells have different structures from animal cells. These differences reflect differences in the functions that each of these classes of cells is required to perform
Introduction to the Cell

What is a prokaryotic Organism?
A prokaryote is a group of organisms whose cells lack a membrane-bound nucleus, also called karyon.
What is a Eukaryotic Organism?
A eukaryote is a single-celled or multicellular organism whose cells contain a distinct membrane-bound nucleus
Difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Cells
The difference between the structure of prokaryotes and eukaryotes is so great that it is considered to be the most important distinction among groups of organisms.
Why are Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells important?

Well It's simple.. they make up all living things, Like Animal cells and plant cells.

Important Vocabulary
Cell structure
- arrangements of all componets in a cell.
Prokaryotic Organism
- a group of organisms that lack a membrane bound nucleus.
