Historic Events in Cell Biology and Cell Theory
The study of cells and cell theory draws us back all the way to the 1600s. However, with the confines of the individual eye, much of the premature biological research concentrated on mounting tools to help us observe miniature things. As this technology became more and more sophisticated, biological findings proliferated. Towards the 1800s, with some minor findings and studies in the records, scientists were able to generate the cell theory. The cell theory eloquently states that cells are the basic structure of all living things. This theory along with other cell findings from the mid 1600s to the late 1800s have played a foremost important role in the study of life in the world today.
