What’s inside a cell?

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what goes on inside a cell from a basic 2D diagram in a textbook.TheresaKnott_Microscope

If you are revising for your AS Biology exams then I’d recommend downloading the app iCell® which can be used on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Android device.

It gives you an amazing interactive 3D view inside three different types of cell – an animal cell, a plant cell and a bacteria cell. This means that you can easily compare the differences between eukaryotes and prokaryotes.

I like the way that you can you can click on the organelles to find out more information about them. You can also rotate the cell and use your finger to zoom in and out.

Give it a go!
