Unit 2: Microscopy
Microscopes are an important tool used in the study of cellular biology.
Electron microscopes have a much higher resolution than light microscopes.
Development in scientific research follows improvements in apparatus - the invention of the electron microscopes led to greater understanding of cell structure.
Use of a light microscope to investigate the structure of cells and tissues.
Drawing cell structure as seen with the light microscope.
Calculation of the magnification of drawings and the actual size of structures and ultrastructures shown in drawings or micrographs.
