Cell Theory: In the year 1838 two German scientists - Mathias Jacob Schleiden and Theodore Schwann gave the famous cell theory which states as follows:

  1. All living things are composed of cells and cell products.
  2. Cells are the structural and functional units of all living things.
  3. All metabolic reactions in living things (unicellular or multicellular) take place within the cell.

The cell theory was later modified by Rudolf Virchow (1885) who stated that all the cells arise from pre-existing cell to the division of work that we have in our society.
