Biology 392, Winter Semester 1999
Topics in Electron Microscopy
- This is a basic course designed to give you enough
"E.M." skills so as to: (i) better understand
the photomicrographs you see in reference material, (ii)
develop your own rudimentary talents, and (iii) give you
the potential to build on those talents for more advanced
projects (like your own research). This course can be a
"stand alone" program, or a beginning for your
arsenal of analytical techniques. I WILL ENCOURAGE
(however not require) YOUR OWN "MINI-PROJECTS".
- See cell biology from the "inside"
(Transmission Electron Microscopy, or TEM)
or from the "outside" (Scanning Electron
Microscopy, or SEM)!
Dept. has partnered with the Physics Dept. and the Center for
Molecular Electronics to achieve this (microscopic)
