Cells: Whole other Worlds within our World

You’ve heard of cells. But what are they exactly? If they’re so small, they’ve got to be simple, right?

Not so fast.

Watch this video. It’s an introduction from Khan Academy to cellular biology.

Now that you know more about cells, check out this video which talks about the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

(Hint: the biggest difference has to do with the nucleus of the cell.)



The “bridge” between the South Biology and Skaggs Biology Buildings with window renderings of enlarged plant cells in the glass.

Like the photo at the top of this story? We do too.

It’s a closeup of the windows in the bridge between two biology buildings at the School of Biological Sciences which you can see to the left here.

The artist used glass as their canvas to represent close ups of plant cells. Pretty, cool huh? You can read more about the study of biology at the University of Utah here
