what is the difference between a single-celled organism and just a regular cell?

In: Biology

There is no “regular” cell.

There are many different types of cells that perform many different functions. A single celled organism is just a cell that has the ability to function on its own. Such as a virus.

A regular cell is part of a multi-celled organism; a single-celled organism is an organism unto itself.
