This course contains a blend of text and a multimedia interactive component to look at the uniformity and diversity within cells. Fundamental to understanding how cells ‘work’ is knowledge of the sub cellular components and how they are arranged and this is tested through a series of in-text and self-assessment questions.

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • list the main components of cells
  • summarise the structure and function of the different components
  • outline how cell ultrastructure is related to cell function
  • identify cell organelles and the main cytoskeletal components in diagrams and EM micrographs and interpret simple EM images.
