Implications of cell theory

Post by njallan » Mon May 15, 2006 7:28 am

Could someone please address the question as to what are some of the main implications of the cell theory (apart from common ancestry) and any other relevant information. Thanks very much.

Robert Hooke discovered and first viewed cells in 1665.
Robert Brown was the first person to describe the cell nucleus in 1833.
Schleiden proposed that plants are made up of cells in 1838; and Schwann found that animals are also made up of cells in 1839. They both proved that cells are the fundamental units of life.
The Cell Theory:
Cells are the fundamental units of life
All organisms are composed of cells and their products
All cells come form pre-existing cells
