The cell is the basic building block of biology. Living things are either single cells or are
collections of single cells that form multicellular organisms. When we look closer, we see that
many individual cells are actually built from combinations of more than one cell. The most
famous example is our mitochondria, which is actually an old bacterial cell that got inside and
became part of our cells over time. Hear Dr. John McCutcheon explain how he thinks this
happened and describe other examples from various other organisms.
