A cell is the structural and functional element that makes up the tissues and organs of living beings. It contains the genetic information of the individual and is the origin of biological creation. It is complex and consists of various elements allowing it to be autonomous, but also to interact with other cells. Living beings are created on the base of a single cell that divides by an iterative phenomenon (called mitosis) to compose the human body. The multiplication of cells is a regulated phenomenon that allows the development of the human body and different organs. An abnormal and uncontrolled reproduction of cells is a fundamental element for the development of cancer
