Rudolph Virchow discovery on cell division

Storyboard Text

  • With the invention of the microscope it helped Robert Hooke discover cells. He observed the thin slices of a cork using a microscope and found out something that looks like compartment rooms which he then called cells
  • Robert Hooke: Fascinating! so this is how the cork looks under a microscope, since it looks like room cells I'll call it cells
  • Matthias Schleiden: Plants are composed of cells
  • Many years after Hooke's discovery on cells both Schleiden and Schwann co-founded the cell theory which Made the 1st and 2nd Postulate of Cell theory " All living organisms are composed of cells and Cells are the basic units of structure and function on organisms"
  • Theodore Schwann: All animals are composed of cells
  • Rudolph Virchow is at his work when he noticed that the cells he is observing keeps dividing
  • Rudolph Virchow: hmm... the cells are dividing to form other cells but I'm still skeptical if all cells do this.
  • When Rudolph Virchow found out about the work of robert remark, he was sure that every cell comes from other cells. He has proven the 3rd Postulate of Cell theory " All cells come from preexisting cells through the process of cell division."
  • Yes! cells really do come from other pre-exiting cells
