What is the cell theory? All living things are made up of cells, cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things, new cells are produced from existing cells
What are prokaryotic cells? Cells without a nucleus are
What are the two links of the prokaryotic cells? Bacteria and archaea are
What are cells with a nucleus called? Eukaryotic cells have a
