Is there any exceptions to cell theory proposed by Schleiden & Schwann
Are there any exceptions to cell theory proposed by Schleiden & Schwann and
Virchow? If yes, what are those?
Yes there are exceptions to cell theory. These are:
1. Cell theory do not explain nature of Virus. They become live and multiply though they are made up of non-living material.
2. How come the first living cell originated or how life began on the earth. (Scientists J.B.S. Haldane, Stanley L. Miller and Harold C. Urey did experiments to on this.).
3. Mitochondria and chloroplasts have their own genetic material and can reproduce independently.
