Fact of the Day: Cell Theory

While cells were discovered long before Theodor Schwann and Matthias Jakob Schleiden were born, they were the first men to develop a scientific theory explaining why cells were important. Their work, the Cell Theory explained what cells were and why they were a basic and vital unit of structure for living things.
