cells, Organelles, post lab analysis

timer Asked: Apr 11th, 2017

Question description

Part I: Conduct your own research on cell structure or take a virtual journey into the cell at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences’ website and read about the cell.

National Institute of General Medical Science. (2012). Inside the Cell. Retrieved from http://publications.nigms.nih.gov/insidethecell/pr...

At the link above, click on Chapter 1: An Owner’s Guide to the Cell to review the function of each of the cell’s organelles.

Complete the table below by providing the function of each organelle you visit in your virtual tour.

Table 1: Organelle Function



1. Necleus

The brain of the cell, directs activities

2. Mitochondria

Makes energy from food

3. Ribosomes

Make protien

4.Golgi Apparatus

Make, package and process protiens

5. Lysosome

Contain enzymes to break down the food

6. Endoplasmic Reticulum

The transportation system of the cell

7. Vacuole

The storage system

8. Chromosones

The cells instruction manual.

Part II: Research how an understanding of each organelle can help to drive current research. You can start by reviewing the NSF’s virtual tour of the cell and discover how the understanding of each organelle’s function is driving current research by reviewing the National Science Foundation’s A Tour of the Cell. You can also conduct your own research about current research.

National Science Foundation. (n.d.). A tour of the cell. Retrieved from https://www.nsf.gov/news/overviews/biology/interac...

Discuss specific ways in which scientists are using our understanding of the function of each organelle to drive scientific research.

By studying the Endoplasmic Reticulum to better understand how it finds and destroys abnormal cells, There are certain proteins that destroy abnormal cells. If we are able to figure out how and why they are triggered we could basically cure cancer.

Is there a correlation between the proper function of an organelle and the proper functioning of cells, tissues, organ, and organ systems? What is this correlation?

Organelle's make up cells which are the building blocks of all life. Cells make up Tissue, Tissue makes up Organs make up our Organ systems.

Which organelle was most interesting to you? Why?

I would have to say Mitochondria for its use in forensics and identification.
