Scheilden said that-:All plants consists of cell

Schwann said that-:All animals and plants are made up of cells

Cell Theory was refined by R.Virchow.He presented the idea that-:All cells are arise from pre existing cells only.

3-All cells are arise from pre existing cells only.
4-Every organism starts its life with single cell only.Viruses are exceptions.
