Distance Learning Lab: In this lab, students will draw each stage in the processes of mitosis and meiosis, and explore sources of genetic variability and errors in cell division. They will also examine histological slides, and compare and contrast the processes of mitosis and meiosis. Please note that this content is not based on a Vernier student experiment.
Lab: In this lab, students will investigate different ways that cells divide, and find out what happens when errors occur during these complex processes. Students will examine mitosis using both plant and animal cells, model the phases of meiosis with clay, observe meiosis in a lily anther, and learn about the sources of genetic variation and potential errors during meiosis.
