3 Student Learning Outcomes: Describe various microscopic techniques, emphasizing differences in resolution and contrast. Compare and contrast basic cell structure between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Highlight important structural characteristics and cellular functions of cytoskeletal elements. Define the term semiautonomous, and outline the general functions of organelles that fall into this category.
