This unique DVD takes us on a journey through the basic unit of life: the cell.
Using both early drawings and exciting imagery taken with the latest microscopes, renowned biologists and young scientists explain their research and share their discoveries. Learn how cells were discovered, how they function, how they impact health and disease, and what the future holds.
