Every organism are made of cells. Other wise they are not considered living.

Many cells - it is a multicellular organism

Organism in all of the kindoms are made up of one or more cells. Only virus don't have cells, and they are not officially in one of the kingdoms.

The survival of the whole organism depends on the functioning of its individual cells for a few reasons. One is that these cells control normal functions.

all organisms are made of one or more cells and the products of those cells

An organism is made of several body systems working together. Body systems are made of more than one specialized tissue. Tissues are made from similar cells with a specific function. And cells are made of chemicals.

Multicellular describes an organism made of many cells. In contrast, a unicellular organism is made up of one single cell. Just about all well-known plants and animals are made of many cells. Examples include human, cat, a rose, mushroom, a spider

A unicellular organism is an organism that has one and only one cell. A multicellular organism is made up of many different cells, all working together.

In an organism, a genetic code is made by the cells, but in that genetic sequence, if one or more letters are change, replaced, or deleted, then those cause mutations in the organism In an organism, a genetic code is made by the cells, but in that genetic sequence, if one or more letters are change, replaced, or deleted, then those cause mutations in the organism

A multicellular organism is made up of two or more cells (animals, plants, etc.)A unicellular organism is only made of one cell.

The term means that an organism has no cells or isn't made up of cells. That is impossible since all organisms have at least one cell.

Humans are classified as multicellular organisms because we are made up of trillions of cells. A unicellular organism is an organism that is only made up of one cell.

Every living organism is made up of one or more cells, so yes. But penguins have no cell phones ;-)

well cells make up each living organism along with atoms , therfore we are made of cells. cells along with atoms they are the basic building blocks of life. organisms come from them A Cell is the smallest thing that can truly be considered alive. "Organism" just means one body, one living thing. You are an organism. A tree is an organism. A bacterium is an organism. Some organisms are made up of many cells, like you and I, whereas some organisms are only a single cell, like bacteria or amoeba.

No, unicellular is defined as "one cell" so the organism is only made of one cell.

A Frog is a Unicellular cause it is made up of one cells. Us humans are Multicellular cause we are made up of more than cell.

User Avatar

no. an amoeba cell is a unicellular organism, which means that it is only made up of one cell

Animals and plants are made of billions of cells because if there was only one or two cells the nutrients would take years to get to the nucleus and the cell/nucleus/organism would die. Same with the oxygen that the organism absorbed. Since the plant/animal is made of billions of cells the nutrients and oxygen get to the nucleus quickly.

A cell on it's one is simply a cell. A collection of cells that perform the same job are a collection of tissues. A collection of tissues which perform different jobs but work together is called an organ. It depends what type of cell you are talking about. A cell only on it's own can be an organism because it relies on diffusion to get nutrients and essential substances. On the other hand, millions of cells can be a mammal, plant or any living thing. But in answer to this question, it doesn't work because an organism is made up of one or more cells and adding one or more cells to an organism is only going to increase the organism size.

If an organism is single celled, it has just one cell. A bacteria is an example. We are made of many cells and we are called multicellular organisms.

A virus has NO cells it is not a cellular organism.

A unicellular organism is an organism that is only made of one cell - such as Paramecium - whereas a multicellular organism is built up of millions and millions of cells forming tissue, organs, bones etc ( such as humans ).
