What Is a Cell Concept Map?

A cell concept map is a diagram that shows the relationships between different cellular components. Cell concept maps can vary in the level of detail they include, but most break down a cell into its individual components and shows what each component does.

Concept maps resemble flowcharts and typically start with the phrase "cell" at the top before branching out into various organelles. From there, the organelles are further expanded upon with a description of their functions. Cell concept maps provide a visual representation of what makes up a cell and how the components participate to preserve the health of the cell.
