Why do we need (cell) death?
Of the three major categories of cell death, apoptosis is what we traditionally refer to when we discuss “programmed cell death,” and it is comparatively the best understood.
Death is an essential part of the life cycle, at the level both of the organism and the cell. Cell death needs to occur during development to prevent webbed toes, for instance, or during an infection to prevent the spread of disease.
