iCell gives students, teachers, and anyone interested in biology a 3D view inside a cell. Included are examples of three types of cells: animal, plant, and bacteria. Learn about the various parts of the cell, which biologists, biochemists, and DNA researchers at the HudsonAlpha Institute study and use to advance the limits of biotechnology. You can use your finger to tap on parts of the cell to select and zoom in on that particular organelle. Each organelle comes with a name and a short description of its function in the cell. For a better view of each cell, hold down one finger on the screen, and drag to rotate around the cell or selected organelle. You can zoom in and out by pinching or flaring with two fingers at once. We hope you enjoy!More

A great way to refresh your memory of organelles
The first time I saw the page with all the organelles inside the cell, I was mesmerized. It was beautiful to see all that complexity inside the cell, and then be able to sort it out. This should be a great learning tool. The graphics are simple but very good. I wish you could click on ribosomes to get a description of those, but they did a good job describing them in the description for endoplasmic reticulum.More
You can view plant, animal, and bacteria cells. You can also change the difficulty level of the text and rotate the cell, viewing it at different distances.More
HudsonAlpha's iCell app
This Huntsville, AL company has and is doing great things for Alabama such as the iCell app. They have trained some 160,000 plus folks as part of their goal of getting more students to major in biology. iCell is only one training tool, but an astounding one. Gets my vote of 5 stars. HudsonAlpha promises to be a leader in biotechnology throughout the world. Substantial and very significant impacts have been made in the short life of this corporation. The outreach to the Huntsville community has been spectacular with the continuation of Biotech 101 and 201 classes. And throughout Alabama teachers and students in the thousands have been engaged in such a way that the term biotechnology is much less a science fiction thing than it is a real here and now thing capable of saving lives and literally turning the field of medicine it a totally different direction for patient health. The iCell app allows students and teachers to learn in more depth the fundamental aspects of life.More
My son and I were instantly fascinated with this application. This is an extremely helpful tool for my children and I enjoy learning with them.More
LOVE THIS APP!
Very concise and very user friendly. A really good study aide for any biology or biotechnology student.More
good for Biology studentMore
This app makes learning about cells so much easier.More
Not in depth enough
This is a good solid app for a highschool student, just learning about the cell. You are unable to see layers of organelles, and an in depth study of the nucleus and mitochondrion, along with other cellular functionsMore
love it so far
could always improve with speech.More
