The nucleus could easily be identified. Last we looked Spyrogyra, which were very interesting. They contain a long cylindrical vacuole and the chloroplasts could easily be seen. The chloroplasts look like a spiral staircase going up the entire cell. U The procedures in this lab were not very hard but it was somewhat difficult to identify the nucleus in the red pepper cells and in the Spyrogyra. The only other difficulty that I had was adjusting the focus on the microscope. I had a problem with the viewing area and I was not able to see the slide through both ocular lenses. N From this lab, I have learned what many different types of cells and organelles look like on the microscopic level. I have also learned how to identify several types of cells and organelles and from drawings that we had to do....
