Cell Lab - Studying Cell Variety
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his
eyes are closed. -Albert Einstein

Restate the Cell Theory in your own words. If you find it necessary to review the cell
theory first, you will find part of it at the top of page 1 of this lab (or in the Cells and
Heredity book.)
