 The
Cell
Theory
 In
1838,

Schleiden
&
Schwann
proposed
two
tenets
of
the
 cell
theory:
 1. 
All
organisms
are
composed
of
one
or
more
cells.
 2. 
The
cell
is
the
structural
unit
of
life.
 1855,
Virchow
proposed
a
third
tenet
of
the
cell
theory:
 3.
 
Cells
can
only
arise
by
division
from
a
preexis^ng
cell.
