Accept nuclear membrane? Also two should be in the singular: mitochondrion, cilium. Finally, 10 could equally be a flagellum (less common perhaps, but still to be found on animal cells).

Great, I got those updated. Thank you!

Sporcle really needed a good, verified cell structure quiz, I hope this makes it to the front page soon. A couple of suggestions to make this more complete: also clearly visible on the diagram are microtubules, centrioles and another 2 membrane bound structures that could well be peroxisomes or vacuoles (yes, in animal cells). These are all structures that someone knowing the rest should also know. Slightly more in depth knowledge might be needed for the basal body. As for the long projection from the cell, I know you accept flagellum but this should be the displayed answer given that there is only one and its comparative length this is much more typical of flagella than cilia that are shorter and many in number (actually the microvilli on the diagram could also be cilia). The term undulipodium would work for both cilia and flagella. Phew. Finally, can you please add a biology tag (my browser isn't letting me). Thanks!

All right on first try! :) 1:42

I really enjoyed the quiz. I do wish it included some more obscure names...

aargh- you and your american spellings of lysozome!

I think the structure labeled "lysosome" is just another vesicle - vacuole or endosome - where there is an intact lysosome SE of that structure, shown thru the transparent PM as a green sphere just above a mitochondrion. I don't know why, but lysosomes are usually colored green in diagrams like this.

should really accept endoplasmic reticulum. seriously, it's not like crick and watson are double checking this quiz.
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 18:03 GMT
Wow, it's been awhile since I took biology.
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 18:07 GMT
Did anybody else try "tail" for flagellum?
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 18:09 GMT
Let's get one of a plant cell published soon.
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 19:40 GMT
What about centrioles?
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 20:02 GMT
Considering I never did well in science, I was happy to get 2 right!
Jan 2nd, 2013 at 22:23 GMT
I guess it really HAS been a long time since I took biology. Not only did I get a grand total of one correct, it wasn't even the nucleus. I hope this comment makes at least one person feel better.
Jan 3rd, 2013 at 00:00 GMT
I think endoplasmic reticulum should count. Pretty good to remember that years after going to school.
Jan 3rd, 2013 at 00:03 GMT
Watson and Crick aren't checking this quiz, but if it were being checked, I would be more worried about Rosalind Franklin ;)

This brought back painful memories of 9th grade biology tests...

How could I miss Golgi Apparatus? It's what makes time travel possible! Oh, wait...
Jan 3rd, 2013 at 04:06 GMT
The rough ER and smooth ER are pretty distinct and have very distinct functions. I think they should be kept separate. It was kind of hard to tell that #2 was pointing to chromatin though.

Mr. Hermann, my biology teacher from 15 years ago, just called. He wants my A back.
Jan 4th, 2013 at 13:20 GMT
I got nucleolus but not nucleus... sporcleitis strikes again! And ditto with everyone else.. been way too long since 9th grade biology...
Jan 6th, 2013 at 01:45 GMT
Plant cell next?!
Jan 6th, 2013 at 02:41 GMT
Amazing what I've forgotten in just a few years... I feel ashamed.
Jan 11th, 2013 at 23:42 GMT
You should accept "cytosol" for "cytoplasm."
Jan 12th, 2013 at 20:27 GMT
16/16, go A level biology :D
Apr 9th, 2013 at 10:11 GMT
I forgot nuclear envelope and microvilli.
