Cell biology Virtual Lab I

Cell biology is an exciting and dynamic area that helps discover the fascinating world of cells. It includes the study of the structure and organization, growth, regulation, movements and interaction of the cells. Cell biology is closely related to other areas of biology such as genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.

Light Microscope
Microscope is an optical instrument that uses lens or combination of lens to produce a magnified images that are too small to seen by unaided eye.
Cell Organization and Sub Cellular Structure Studies (Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic)
To study the specimen preparation step for prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and to study the procedure of simple staining.
Transmission Electron Microscopy
To familiarize the technique of sample preparation for transmission electron microscopy.
Isolation of Mitochondria
To isolate mitochondria from the cell through differential and density gradient centrifugation.
Isolation of Chloroplast
To isolate intact chloroplasts and estimate the concentration of chlorophyll molecule from spinach leaves.
Isolation of Endoplasmic Reticulum
To isolate the endoplasmic reticulum from mammalian cells.
Basics of Plant Tissue Culture
To know plant tissue culturing, production of callus and measure the efficacy of root and shoot.
Glucose Uptake Assay
To measure the glucose uptake activity of the cells. This assay also help us to find the effect of different plant extracts and drugs on the glucose uptake activity.
Transfection
The objective to performing transfection is to better understand functionality and structure of cells. Through DNA transfection researchers aim to study gene expression and protein expression.
Western Blotting
To detect the presence of proteins and to learn the process of western blotting.
