The present chapter contains a brief introduction to membranes in living cells. This chapter describes the composition and functions of cell membranes and the functions of some of the organelles present in eukariotic cells. The presentation of biochemical and biological concepts provided in this book is quite simplified. It is directed to computer scientists, not biologists. This chapter's aim is to give sufficient background for the understanding of the biological processes and phenomena which inspired the considered models of membrane systems.

Keywords:   lipid bilayer, membranes in cells, eukaryotic, organelle, membrane systems
