  • Aligned with Big Ideas 2 and 3 and Essential Knowledge 2.B.2, 2.C.3, 2.D.1, 2.E.1, 2.E.2, 3.B.2, 3.D.1, 3.D.2, 3.D.3, and 3.E.1
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

Investigate the impact of pheromones on the growth and development of 2 yeast strains.

  • Practice microscope skills
  • Acquire knowledge for culturing yeast using sterile technique
  • Understand the life cycle and mating pheromone-signaling pathway of yeast
  • Conduct individual experiments to investigate the secreted yeast pheromones a-factor and alpha-factor

Students put their microscopy skills to the test as they use sterile technique to investigate the life cycle of yeast cells. As they build an understanding of the yeast life cycle, they delve deeper into the process of yeast reproduction. Students then culture and mix 2 strains of yeast and observe the role pheromones play in the cell communication. Students further investigate mating pheromone communication by designing individual experiments using both a-factor and alpha-factor yeast cells. The 1-Station Kit includes materials for 1 group of 4 students. Kit is shipped with perishable materials.

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Biology Kits

Teach AP® Biology Your Way with Support from a Name You Can Trust

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.


Exclusive kits from Carolina

Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.


Inquiry made simple

Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
