The basic unit of all living things, the cell is a world in itself. This book explores the workings of plant and animal cells -- what they look like, how they're nourished, and how they reproduce. It also describes the role of disease cells in the human body, and how new knowledge about cells provides hope for the treatment of illnesses such as cancer and muscular dystrophy.
