cell theory is the historic scientific theory, now universally accepted, that living organisms are made up of cells, that they are the basic structural/organizational unit of all organisms, and that all cells come from pre-existing cells. Cells are the basic unit of structure in all organisms and also the basic unit of reproduction.

Human cancer cells with nuclei (specifically the DNA) stained blue. The central and rightmost cell are in interphase, so the entire nuclei are labeled. The cell on the left is going through mitosis and its DNA has condensed.

The three tenets to the cell theory are as described below:

All living organisms are composed of one or more cells.

The cell is the basic unit of structure and organization in organisms.

Cells arise from pre-existing cells.

There is no universally accepted definition of life. Some biologists consider non-cellular entities such as viruses living organisms,[1] and thus reasonably disagree with the first tenet. Throughout this article, it will lead you through the history of cell theory, how the discovery of cells was made possible, what the cell theory has become today and background information and history regarding other opposing concepts of cell theory.
