3.01 Cell Cycle Lab Report Safety Notes: Always handle microscopes and glass slides carefully. Wash your hands after handling the prepared specimens. Materials: o Compound light microscope o Glass microscope slide with prepared onion root tip specimen Purpose: understand and identify the stages of the cell cycle and mitosis. apply an analytical technique to estimate the relative length of each stage of the cell cycle. Hypothesis: What do you predict you will find about the number of cells in each of the phases of the cell cycle? I think that the cells will vary in size which would help tell which phase it’s transitioning into. Procedure: Data and Observations: Create a data table containing a tally of the number of cells observed in each of the following stages: Stage Number of Cells in Part 1 Number of Cells in Part 2 Interphase 34 49 Prophase 8 13 Metaphase 3 4 Anaphase 2 3 Telophase 2 4 Cytokinesis 1 3

    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.
