I went further into this topic by describing the membrane traffic pathways in my paper, which are how the different organelles communicate. I made a map to illustrate the inside of a cell. The different buildings represent the different organelles within a cell. The roads on the map represent the membrane pathways and illustrate how the buildings are connected and the fact that that is how they communicate with each other. City hall is the nucleus of the cell because it tells everything else what to do. It also contains the blueprints of the city, similar to how the nucleolus in the nucleus contains DNA strands. The power plant is the mitochondria because it produces and provides energy for the rest of the town/cell. The post office is the Golgi apparatus because it receives things from other places and tags and packages and sends them to other places. The recycling center is the lysosomes in the cell because they take in materials to reuse them somewhere else in the cell. The dump is the peroxisomes because it destroys unhelpful materials in the cell and gets rid of them. The factory represents the rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum because it produces materials used in the rest of the town/cell. I went into further detail in my paper, but I thought a map would be a good way to visualize what the inside of a cell would look like.
