Cell theory: instructions for life

Every living organism is made up of cells. If this seems obvious and indisputable to you, it took more than two centuries for this idea to take hold in the 19th century.

Two centuries of prolific observation and theoretical developments, sometimes contradictory, have made the cell a fundamental unit for understanding the living world and distinguishing it from the nonliving.

Today in Sciences Chrono we trace the winding journey of cell theory that today serves as an unbreakable foundation for an entire department of biology.
