Dear friends, collaborators, relatives and other potential
partners in my misery,
My apologies for bugging all of you with this, but I assume
that many of you might have gone through pains I am just
about to experience.
Hence, my hope that you may be able, and willing, to help.
Thank you in advance.
I will be putting together a LABORATORY cell biology course
for 3rd, preferably 4th year undergraduate students. I
expect a class of in between 30 and MAXIMUM 50 students.
I would appreciate suggestions on what type experiments one
can design for such a class?
I would prefer students DO experiments and not WATCH them
being done. I presume that the class could be split into
three groups if such need arises.
We have at hand two c-focal microscopes, four wide-field
fluorescence microscopes, and quite a number of standard
student-type bright field microscopes.
Of course, the experiments do not have to be restricted to
microscopy, a simple, student-performed dissctions followed
by tissue culture, for example, could be also implemented.
Any suggestion will help.
Thanks a lot!
