2 Model organisms are used to study cell biology. Considerations when selecting a model organism include size, cost, and genetics. Each organism has specific pros and cons. Whole organisms can be used to study cell biology by comparing cells from two individuals. Whole organisms can be used to answer questions like “How does a treatment affect different tissues” or “How does treatment affect the organism.” Cells can be isolated from multicellular organisms to be grown in lab (“cell culture”). 1) Choose a tissue relevant to the questions. Commonly used cell types are fibroblasts (dermis cells from connective tissue) and epithelial cells (coat the organs), and many others including blood and muscle cells. 2) Isolate cells by dissecting a chunk of tissues out of a tissue.
