Study of organelles, the impact of biochemical pathways, cytostructure, division (mitosis, meiosis, binary fission), loss of function (e.g., apoptosis), etc.

Generally cells and their biology can be distinguished into those that are prokaryotic versus eukaryotic or in terms the three domains, Eukarya, Bacteria, and Archaea.

We can view the following as the context within which the science of cell biology falls:

Cell, Cell biology, Cell culture, • Cell division • , Cell membrane, • Cell-to-cell communication • ,Cell wall, Cellular organism, Chromosome, Compartmentalization, Cristae, Cytoplasm, Cytosol, • Eukaryotic cell • , Fluid mosaic model, Glycocalyx, Granum, Membrane-bound organelle, Organelle, Phagolysosome, Plasma membrane, • Prokaryotic cell • , Ribosome, Signal sequence, Surface-to-volume ratio, Thylakoid, Turgidity, Vacuole.
