Question

Give a brief account of discovery of the cell.


Solution

Robert Hooke examined a thin slice of cork under a self-designed crude microscope and observed that the cork resembled the structure of a honey comb. The latter consisted of many tiny compartments. Hooke called them cellulae (Singular cellula), now termed cells. Cellula is a Latin name which means a ‘little room’. Such rooms were also present in monasteries.
