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.

    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.
