The cell is the basic unit of life, and there are two main types; Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes. The cell’s size is limited by two main factors; it must be able to hold enough DNA for the coding of enzymes which control the reactions that take place in the cell, and also the cell cannot get infinitely large because as the ratio of surface area to volume increases, the rate of diffusion(which is needed for regulation of sufficient cell balance) increases. 649 more words

But both humans and bacteria are organisms based on a cellular structure which does lump us in together against things such as viruses, prions and viroids. 1,264 more words
