The Cellular Biology ClipArt gallery offers 240 illustrations of biology at the cellular level for many species and parts of the body, including blood cells and bone tissue, and also contains general images of cell, cell structure, and cell reproduction.

A typical cell consists of two portions, one, te firmer, forming an excessively delicate meshwork enclosing its cavities the second more fluid part. Therefore, when highly mangnified, the appearance would be essentialluy like a sponge fully saturated with water. The protoplasm the sponge work, and possibly the fluid part is living and both are transparent.
