Donovan Miske DES 2/2/09 Lab 3: Testing Hypothesis about Mitosis Sec 1 Jeffery Pre-lab Purpose Statement In this lab our goal is to learn the scientific method while broadening our knowledge of cell division. Mitosis is an exceptionally important concept to include in ones foundation for all other biological studies. By studying onion root tips we hope to formulate an idea of time intervals between points in the cell cycle while constructing a scientific process to get to our conclusion. Methods Summary a) First get familiar with each stage of mitosis. 1. Gap 0 (G0) Cell is at rest 2. Gap 1 (G1) If the environment will permit the cell increases in size and produces RNA and synthesizes protein. 3. Synthesis (S) DNA is replicated 4. Gap 2 (G2) The cell keeps growing and reaches a checkpoint to make sure it can proceed to the next step 5. Mitosis (M) Mitosis is much shorter of a phase than Interphase lasting only one to two hours. It also has a checkpoint to make sure it can continue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
