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.

4 Cell theory (p. 61) 1. All living things are composed of one or more cells 2. Cells are the smallest units of living organisms 3. New cells come only from pre-existing cells by cell division

5 Microscopy (pp. 61-64) Magnification Ratio between the size of an image produced by a microscope and its actual size Resolution Ability to observe two adjacent objects as distinct from one another Contrast Can be enhanced using dyes

8 Electron microscopes Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) Thin slices stained with heavy metals Some electrons are scattered while others pass through to form an image Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) Sample coated with heavy metal Beam scans surface to make 3D image

10 Prokaryotic cells (pp. 64-65) Simple cell structure Lack a membrane-enclosed nucleus 2 categories- bacteria and archaea Both small Bacteria- abundant, most not harmful Archaea- less common, often found in extreme environments
