This video takes a close-up look at the lowest common denominator of all life: the cell. It illustrates essential cellular processes—transportation of materials, communication, energy transfer, protein-building, waste disposal, movement, and the all-important mitosis and meiosis—as well as key cellular landmarks like the nucleus, ribosomes, mitochondria, the Golgi complex, the endoplasmic reticulum, and lysosomes. Special attention is given to recent advances in biotechnology.
