Let us begin with the ABC’s of the Cell Theory which splits into 3 major parts:
All living beings are made up of cells
Cells are the basic unit of structure in all organisms
All cells come from preexisting cells. To have a deeper understanding of the statements above, which is, in fact, the simplified version of this vast topic, let’s refer to the Venn diagram below:
It shows that in biology, not all living organisms are composed of the same cell. Single-celled or Unicellular …show more content…
One of the greatest scientific minds of the 17th Century is Robert Hooke. As a polymath and renaissance man, he contributed in physics, chemistry, anatomy, biology, geology, paleontology, architecture & memory. His Theory of Elasticity help to regulate watches, he worked on the Wave of Light Theory, Matter expands when heated, he first used the microscope.
Hooke was actually the first person to view cells under a microscope. Thus, he coined the term 'cell' as it's now used in biology. He published Micrographia in which Hooke's drawings show the detailed shape and structure of a thinly sliced piece of cork. Hooke named these cells because it reminded him of the rooms in which monks lived in called cells.
The cover of Robert Hooke's Micrographia, published in 1665. In addition to illustrations, he described how to make a microscope like the one he used.

The former, a German botanist who studied plant structure under the microscope. He concluded that all plant tissues are composed of cells and that an embryonic plant arose from a single cell. He claimed that cells were what all plants we made out of. Professor of botany at the University of Jena, Matthias Schleiden was one of the founding fathers of cell theory. He showed that the activity of cells lead to development of all vegetable tissues. Schleiden also proved that a nucleated cell is the first element of the plant embryo. Government policy has to deal with investing in scientific progress. The question remains how far can government inject money in, for example, more powerful sophisticated microscope and Cell experimentation or do they go for priorities like education and social welfare? Eventually, Laboratories would rather carry out this mission, shareholders could be invited to join in investment. So far so good, as long as no monopolization takes place and disrupt our ethical and moral limitations. Do we consider more advanced Cell Theory as part of education or simply extras? Ironically speaking I can conclude that since our socio-economic background differs, science experiments can, unfortunately, take place in limited places of the world, while simultaneously benefitting the whole of
