When you look at the world around us, you can see many examples that demonstrate how an object's or a system's structure relates to its function. The structure of a highway system, for example, can affect traffic flow. You can, no doubt, think of many other examples.
In this discussion board, you will look at the structure of the most basic unit of life, the living cell. And, you will investigate how the structures of cells are directly related to functions that are important to life.

Choose any one of the following eukaryotic cell structures for a short essay:
In your answer, describe its basic structure (including molecular composition) as well as the function. Why is the function important to keeping the cell alive?
Provide references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used throughout the assignment.
