Cell An alogy Pr oject : Com pu t er s vs Cells

By : Ham za J, Sh eh er yar I, an d Sh ayan A


M it och on dr ia
By : Ham za J

In the cell, Mitochondria supplies power to the cell. In the computer, the
com pu t er 's bat t er y is like the Mitochondria in the cell. The computer 's
battery supplies and provides power for the computer so the computer
doesn't stop working.

By Sh eh er yar .I

In a cell, a nuclear membrane is the membrane that surrounds the nucleus


from the cytoplasm around it. In a computer, a nuclear membrane resembles
the CPU socket as that's what keeps the CPU in place and connect the CPU
with cell.
Cell Wall
By: Shayan.A

The cell wall of a plant is very similar to the computer case of


a computer. The plant cell wall is a strong wall that protects
the cell and gives it its shape. The computer case on the
other hand is a protective casing with important and delicate
parts of a a computer inside. It keeps everything together.
They are both so similar because both of them hold and
protect the delicate contents of a computer/ cell.
En doplasm ic Ret icu lu m
By : Ham za J
The Endoplasmic reticulum is a network of membrane tubes that let
materials flow through a cell. Something in the computer that you can
compare the endoplasmic reticulum to is the network of wires. The network
of wires also lets power flow the wires so the computer can function
properly.
Ribosom es
By Sh eh er yar .I

In a Cell, Ribosomes are mainly used for making protein for the cells. And
that protein is vital for the cell as that protein is used to fix damaged parts
and is used for directing chemical processes of the cell. In a Computer, the
power supply greatly resembles the Ribosomes as the power supply makes
power for the computer so that the computer can run.
Vacuoles
By: Shayan.A
The Vacuole in a cell is very similar to the RAM of a computer. The Vacuole
in a cell stores water, food, waste, and more until they are used or gotten rid
of. The RAM in a computer stores data from a software. It doesn't store
things permanently, files on the RAM are either disposed of or saved. The
Vacuole in a cell is like the RAM of a Computer because both store things
that are important for the cells/ computers task. Both of them store things
that need to be gotten rid of. Both of them are used for short-term storage.
Nu cleolu s
By : Ham za J

The nucleolus in the cell helps ribosomes make proteins from


directions given from the nucleus. It is located inside the nucleus.
The operating system in the computer runs the computer 's
functions. The operating system could be chrome , windows ,
android, or apple.
Lysosom es
By Sh eh er yar .I
In a cell, Lysosomes are used for removing and recycling waste by digest in
the cell. In a computer, the recycling bin is the most similar to the lysosomes.
The recycling bin is used for deleting documents and application that the
user doesn't need anymore by removing them and making more space in the
computer for the user to download anything if they need to.
Nucleus
By: Shayan.A
The Nucleus of a cell is very similar to the operating system of a
computer. The Nucleus acts like the cell's brain and controls eating,
movement, reproduction and more. The operating system does
something similar to this and controls all of the computer's
activities. Both the Nucleus and the operating system are control
centers in their cell/ computer..
Cell m em br an e
By : Ham za J

In the cell, the cell m em br an e controls what goes in and out of a cell. In the
computer, the firewall (ex. Norton, Mcafee) prevents things that might harm
the computer from coming into the computer 's system. A firewall only allows
certain things to pass through it, just like a cell membrane.
Golgi Bodies
By Sh eh er yar .I
The Golgi Body has a lot of functions in the cell, including sorting and
processing protein for secretion. The golgi bodies resemble the power supply
wires in a computer as those are what sort the power from the power supply
to the place that requires them the most.
Chlor oplast s
By: Shayan.A
Chloroplast in a plant cell is very similar to the power chord of a computer.
The chloroplast in a cell helps capture energy from the sun and turn it into
food. The power chord of a computer takes energy from a socket in the wall.
It gets the computer the power it needs to function. Chloroplast and the
power chord are similar because both take energy from an outside source.
The energy that the chloroplast gets is to function the cell. The energy the
power chord gets is to function the computer.
