Single cells are also known as unicellular organisms. Single cell organisms are microscopic and composed of a single cell, unlike multicellular organisms that are made of many cells. They can live and carry out all of their life processes as one single cell. Unicellular organisms are divided into two categories: Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic Organisms. Some of the examples of single cell organisms are prokaryotes, most protists, and some fungi.Individual cells can differ dramatically in size, protein levels, and expressed RNA transcripts, and these variations are key to answering previously irresolvable questions in cancer research, stem cell biology, immunology, developmental biology, and neurology. The measurement of specific proteins and transcripts in individual cells is critical for understanding the role of cellular diversity in development, health, and disease.
