More About this Product
Begins by introducing cells as the building blocks of life. The program then describes the two basic types of cells: eukaryotic and prokaryotic. The program goes on to illustrate with detailed 3-D animation the major components of prokaryotic cells: nucleus, nuclear membrane, golgi bodies, microtubules, microfilaments, cytoplasm, etc. The importance of the cell membrane in the process of diffusion, osmosis, and active transport are illustrated. Cellular processes, such as respiration, photosynthesis, and reproduction are discussed.
