Attack of the Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes!

Hanging outside Mr. Loar’s classroom on the first floor you’ll find some interesting multi-media art depicting  . . .

cell biology!

More specifically, prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells.

Prokaryotic cells, the simple cells of organisms like bacteria, are sometimes compared to one-room cabins: they don’t have internal membranes, so they’re like a single room with no walls to carve it up.

Eukaryotic cells, on the other hand, are like a large family home split into many rooms with different purposes (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living room, etc.) Eukaryotic cells contain a variety of different compartments with specialized functions, neatly separated from one another by layers of membrane.

So what kind of cells are human beings made up of?

Both!

Human bodies are composed of trillions of cells, including lots of different types of eukaryotic cells that make up different organs. But human bodies ae include prokaryotic cells such as bacteria. But don’t be afraid – these bacteria do more good than harm.
