The nucleus is one of the most important cell organelles found in eukaryotic cells. It is a membrane-bound organelle that contains the entire genetic information of the cell.
Historically, the nucleus was one of the very first cell organelles to discovered and documented. The earliest recorded instances of the nucleus can be traced back to the drawings of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, in the 18th century.
The nucleus is also one of the largest structures in the cell, occupying almost 10% of the cell’s total volume in most eukaryotic cells.
