Course Descriptions

BIOL 59500 Transmission Electron Microscopy Laboratory

Session Offered:

Credit 2.0

Prerequisites:

Consent of instructor required.  May not be enrolled as the following classifications: Freshman 0-14 hours, Freshman 15-29 hours, Sophomore 30-44 hours and Sophomore 45-59 hours.

Description:

Two focus areas.  Students can choose either one of the areas.  First area is a rudimentary introduction to high-resolution electron microscopy of macromolecules.  Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to examine negatively stained samples and to record publication-quality images.  Though some training in cryo-electron microscopy will be given, students will not be sufficiently proficient in this technology without advanced training.  The second area is a practical introduction to preparation of cells and tissues for TEM evaluation of ultrastructure.  Staining, fixation, embedding and sectioning techniques will be covered.  It is expected that students enrolled in this course will need this technique for their research in the near future.
