Connect different parts of e course to get an integrated view of cell biology and function Goals this week:- METHODS What is it? Proteins, lipids, purified proteins? Sketch of how experiments work What is being investigated What do the results mean? What are the limits of these experiments? If you look at a good scientific paper there are usually several different techniques used Where to start? What cells to use? Yeast, fruit fly, mouse, human (increasing in size) Yeast is genetically identical, easy to manipulate genome, con-only one type of yeast cell (no yeast liver cell) Fruit flies are sequenced, few ethical issues, can't store long term need to maintain stocks Mouses are expensive, inbred lines that are well understood, can me deletions in the genome relatively easily, good for whole organism systems- cant store mice, handling properly is labor intensive Humans have large cells, genetics are complicated, expensive, can't grow in lab-no inbred lines Can grow isolated cells in the lab Need cells from a multicellular organism 1 cell isn't enough - need controls If we have a mouse we can treat it in some way, dissect it, see how different cells behave (liver, brain, skin)( how does the treatment affect different tissues?)

    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.
