The extraordinary biochemical diversity of prokaryotic cells is manifested in the wide-ranging lifestyles of the archaebacteria and the bacteria, whose habitats include polar ice, deserts, and hydrothermal vents—deep regions of the ocean under great pressure where hot water geysers erupt from cracks in the ocean floor.

Organisms vary from single cells (called single-celled or unicellular organisms) that function and survive more or less independently, through colonial forms with cells living together, to multicellular forms in which cells are specialized.
All cells whether prokaryotic or eukaryotic have a membrane, which envelopes the cell, separates its interior from its environment, controls what moves in and out, and maintains the electric potential of the cell.
Prokaryotic cells have three architectural regions: appendages called flagella and pili—proteins attached to the cell surface; a cell envelope consisting of a capsule, a cell wall, and a plasma membrane; and a cytoplasmic region that contains the cell genome (DNA) and ribosomes and various sorts of inclusions.

 What is a Cell
The simplest of cells, and the first types of cells to evolve, were prokaryotic cells—organisms that lack a nuclear membrane, the membrane that surrounds the nucleus of a cell.
The cells may be adjacent to one another because they did not separate after cell division or because they remained enclosed in a common sheath or slime secreted by the cells.
All cells arise from pre-existing cells, that is, their genetic material must be replicated and passed from parent cell to progeny.

As mitochondria contain their own genome that is separate and distinct from the nuclear genome of a cell, they play a critical role in generating energy in the eukaryotic cell, a process involving a number of complex metabolic pathways.
Prokaryotic cells have three architectural regions: appendages called flagella and pili proteins attached to the cell surface; a cell envelope consisting of a capsule, a cell wall, and a plasma membrane; and a cytoplasmic region that contains the cell genome (DNA) and ribosomes and various sorts of inclusions.

 Cell Biology Biowissenschaften in der Zellbiologie
Die Cell Biology ist ein Teilbereich der Biowissenschaften und ist in den letzten beiden Jahrzehnten immer wichtiger geworden, da sich mit Hilfe der Zellbiologie viel über das Leben einzelner Organismen lernen lassen kann.
Typische Untersuchungen im Bereich der Cell Biology sind Zellteilungen, die Bewegung von Zellen im einzelnen oder in Zellverbänden und in einem hohen Maß der kommunikative Austausch zwischen den einzelnen Zellen.
Besondere Beachtung fand die Cell Biology in den 1990er Jahren durch die ersten geglückten Klonversuche von Lebewesen (Stichwort: Klonschaf Dolly), die auf der einen Seite auch zu einer Kontroverse geführt haben, ob man sich als Mensch solch einen Klonprozess anmaßen dürfte.
