Mitosis and meiosis are critical cellular functions that are crucial to our survival
- Observe mitosis in plant and animal cells
- Compare the relative lengths of the stages of mitosis in onion root-tip cells
- Simulate the stages of meiosis
- Observe evidence of crossing over in meiosis using Sordaria fimicola
- Estimate the distance of a gene locus from its centromere
Designed to match traditional AP® Biology Lab 3. Using prepared slides and electronic images of whitefish and onion cells, students learn about the 4 stages of mitosis in Lab Activities A and B. Activity C requires the use of item #171100 Carolina BioKits®: Chromosome Simulation Kit, which is not included. A Sordaria
Demonstration Cross Plate (item #155846) for demonstrating crossing over during meiosis is provided for Lab Activity D. Kit includes materials and instructions for extension activities at no extra cost to the teacher, plus teacher instructions and reproducible student sheets. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. The 1-Station Kit includes materials for 1 group of 4 students. The 8-Station Replacement Set replaces consumed items.
Note: Order the kit and the replacement set with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials. Sordaria cultures are shipped on Fridays only and are ready for use the following Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Please give 2 or more weeks’ advance notice for delivery of Sordaria culture.
