Cell Biology

This page gives links, notes and assignments for the following sections of the course:

B1 Cell Structures (cells and organelles) p. 47 of PLO
B9 Cell Membrane p. 57 of PLO
B10 Surface Area to Volume Ratio p. 57 of PLO

Review  the notes and assignments given out in class, as well as your notes for the videos "Cell: How it works", and  "Secrets of The Cell", especially the section "membrane as gatekeeper" as well as the Potato Lab writeup and assignment.

Check your PLOs (study guide handed out in class) to check your knowledge against the quiz/exam criteria. I recommend you use it as a summary checklist and vocabulary-to-know list for each unit.
