Learn and test your biological vocabulary for 1.2 Ultrastructure of cells using these flash cards.
- Know and be able to draw the simple structure of Prokaryote cells
- Know and draw the compartmentalised structure of Eukaryotic cells.
- Understand that the resolving power of electron microscopes is between 10µm and 1nm
whereas light microscopes resolve details between 1mm and 1µm.
Skills and applications
- Ability to identify organelles from microscope images of cells.
- Ability to explain how the composition of organelles will be different in cells with different functions,
(e.g. goblet cells which make mucus and palisade mesophyll cells which do photosynthesis).
- Explain how the structure of prokaryotes allows them to divide by binary fission.
