Who discovered the nucleus in the cell?
Cell nucleus discovery The question is debatable as Thonius Philips van Leeuwenhoek (October 24, 1632 - August 30, 1723)1, Dutch scientist first observed the cell nuleus. "In 1682 he clearly described the nucleus within the red blood cells of fish, and in 1683 he noticed the sedimentation of erythrocytes from a suspension and their lysis upon addition of water."2
It was Robert Brown (December 21, 1773-June 10, 1858)3 a Scottish Botanist who observed and gave the name "cell nucleus". Brown, is best known for the discovery of Brownian motion random movement within fluids due to molecular energy of fluid and also used as a mathematical model for Stochastic processes (random i.e. financial markets, atmospheric events).2,4
Some sources site Brown and not van Leeuwenhoek as the discoverer.5

The atomic nucleus was discovered by Ernest Ruthorford in the 1800's with his gold foil experiment. The earliest records of the biological (or cell) nucleus are from Antonie… van Leeuwenhoek in 1719.
The group of organic molecules that that were first discovered in the nucleus of the cell are called?
Robert Brown in 1831. Hope this helps! -Zoey Brown
Robert Brown discovered the nucleus of the cell in 1831.
It Was Robert brown,a scottish botanist.
The nucleus is like the brain. It is the control center.
The nucleus of the cell contains much of the DNA of the cell, and it regulates the activities of that cell, whatever those activities are. The nucleus is composed of chemical …structures that orchestrate chemical reactions that make the cell function. It is the nucleus, or, rather, those things in it, that control what the cell does, including those activities that keep the cell alive, as well as the things it does to contribute to the functioning of the organism whose structure it is a part of.
The nucleus contains the DNA of the cell and this is vital for cell division and also for making the proteins that the cell needs to function.
Prokaryotes (bacteria). Instead of nucleus, bacterial DNA is stored in a region known as nucleoid, as well as in circular structures known as plasmids.
he didn't he discovered the nucleolus
The atomic nucleus (chemistry, physics) - Ernest Rutherford * The cell nucleus (biology) - Antonie van Leeuwenhoek
its basically the brain of the cell, if the cell didn't have a nucleus it go nutz like us if we didn't have a brain

English physicist Ernest Rutherford is credited with discovering the nucleus in the early 1900s. He discovered the nucleus during an experiment in which the physicists bea…med alpha particles at a thin sheet of gold foil. When most of the particles passed through the gold foil onto the screen behind it, but some were deflected, Rutherford determined that the particles that made up the gold foil must consist mostly of empty space. However, he concluded, some regions of the gold must have been too dense to allow the alpha particles through, and this heavy part of the atom was what Rutherford called the nucleus.
