Hello there, dear learner! I am glad to be with you again. Are you the kind of person who asks the Whys and Hows around you? Do you consider yourself a unique organism? Did you ever wonder what made you a human? If the gadgets you use are made up of small circuits then what about you; what are you made of? How about animals and plants, are they made up of the same material as you are? How do they differ? What are their similarities?
This module will help you answer those questions you have in mind. All organisms, from ants to zebras, algae to trees are basically alike. Their bodies are made up of cells. Located within the cell are minute organelles that have specific functions for the cell to be able to perform various cellular processes including replication and cell division.
