The Learn Genetics: Cell Size and Scale webpage allows you to view the size of a cell in comparison to other items we are more familiar with, like 12 point type, a coffee bean, and more smaller things! Using the given bar, you are able to zoom in and out to see the cell and other items in comparison. The ‘Notes’ section provides some information explaining about the size of the different items shown. There is also reference to a text for further study. The greater Learn Genetics site has many other useful tools and information to explore as well.
