The articles must be properly cited

Lab 2

1. Which chromosomes contribute to the nucleolus?

The nucleolus, located within the nucleus is an important organelle as it is involved in ribosomal RNA transcription and is the site for ribosome assembly. It is formed around nucleolar organisers which involve repeated rRNA genes.In humans, chromosomes 13, 14, 15, 21 and 22 are found which contain rRNA genes contributing to the nucleolus and it's function. Nucleolus Link

2.Identify and add a link to your page of a recent cell biology article using confocal microscopy from the Pubmed database.

An Atlas for Schistosoma mansoni Organs and Life-Cycle Stages Using Cell Type-Specific Markers and Confocal Microscopy

Lab 3

1. Find the SDS information for chloroform and identify the hazards associated with this chemical

MSDS Chloroform

Acute Health Effects:

Irritant to skin, eyes and lungs

Harmful if ingested or inhaled

Chronic Health Effects:

Carcinogenic effects

Mutagenic for mammalian somatic cells.

Repeated exposure to the substance can cause organ damage. Toxic to kidneys, liver, heart.

2. You will need to upload an image and add it to your page, with the reference and copyright information with the image.
