Cell structure

E Coli by hukuzatuna on flickr

The syllabus guide for Topic 2 is here: Topic 2 – syllabus outline

You need to be able to draw, label and annotate a diagram of E.Coli (a prokaryote) and a liver cell (a eukaryote).  In addition you should be able to recognize these structures on an electron micrograph like the one pictured. 

You will also have to compare prokarotes and eukaryotes, and compare plant and animal cells.

Here are a couple of great presentations to help you achieve these tasks, and I’ll be giving you several handouts to practice with.  We’ll be getting the light microscopes out for a play too, as well as making our own slides to view.  Presentation on prokaryotesPresentation on eukaryotes.
