Some items will require the password that has been provided to enrolled students and instructors.
After completing this lab, the students will be able to:
- know the similarities and the difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells.
- recognize the typical structures found in bacteria.
- recognize the typical structure found in protists.
- recognize the typical structure found in animal cells.
- recognize the typical structure found in plant cells.
- Identify the major components of each type of cell and describe the function of each.
