Are ribosomes considered an organelle or not?

Different sources say different answers for this, so I’m not too sure, thanks!

@angelayuan1210 Yes, the ribosome is considered an organelle since an organelle is defined as “any structure within a living cell.”
Hope this helped clear up any confusion you had :slight_smile:

thanks! : )
