Laboratory Exercises and Techniques in Cellular Biology (EHEP001772) cover image

Description

This manual consists of 30+ experiments that coincide and complement each of the 18 chapters in the Karp text (978-1-1182-0673-7.) There are three possible designs of the lab book, based on the instructor's needs. These designs focus on either Techniques, Concepts, or Organelles. The procedures of the 30+ experiments remain standard and unchanged in all designs of the lab book. Special Overview pages, Discussion Questions and Datasheets bookend the procedures in order to create each of the possible textbook designs. This gives instructors flexibility to create a lab book that suits their lecture course curriculum, their experience, and available equipment and supplies.
