The Cell poster

The world inside us, as a classroom poster

We all share something amazing in common – that we developed from a single sperm and egg to become complicated, sophisticated organisms, made of trillions of cells. But what are these cells like and how do they vary from one tissue to another?

Our classroom poster gives a flavour of the complex make-up of a typical animal cell.

Our printed copies are now out of stock – but you can still download the PDF as a reference guide below.
