The four parts of a cell

  1. Nucleus – this is where the chromosomes are, containing the genes. It is surrounded by cytoplasm and contained within an inner and outer membrane
  2. Nucleoplasm – the stuff inside the nucleus
  3. Cytoplasm – the part of the cell outside the nucleus. This is where metabolic reactions happen. The fluid part of the cytoplasm is called cytosol, and within the cytosol and nucleoplasm are organelles which each have a function determined by their structure
  4. Plasma membrane.
