Contemporary Cell Biology (S7)
(Electrophoresis Equipment Not Required)
Today’s cell biology is a fascinating blend of molecular biology, biochemistry, and a variety of traditional disciplines. These fields are integrated into this program in order to introduce students to selected topics in eukaryotic cell biology.
In the program, students localize enzymes in plant and animal cells, perform cell fractionation procedures, and study the properties of a specific membrane receptor. Each exercise can be completed in one 3-hour or two 90-minute laboratory sessions.
Microscopes, slides, microliter dispensers, small test tubes, tabletop centrifuge, and ethyl alcohol are needed but not provided.
