BIO SCI D111L Developmental and Cell Biology Laboratory (2013-2014)

BIO SCI D111L Developmental and Cell Biology Laboratory

(Required for BMEP.)
Catalog Data:

BIO SCI D111L Developmental and Cell Biology Laboratory (Credit Units: 4) Students study the division of cells, isolate cellular organelles (chloroplasts, mitochondria, nuclei), and follow changes in cells undergoing programmed cell death. Development is demonstrated in experiments showing cooperation of individual cells in forming a multicellular organism. Prerequisite: BIO SCI 194S. Prerequisite or corequisite: BIO SCI 100 and (BIO SCI D103 or BIO SCI D104 or BIO SCI D105). Students who require this lab for completion of their degree have first consideration for enrollment.
