intro to anatomy - question about cells

  1. Our prof wants us to read about cells for tomorrow's discussion. The book for our class is out of stock, and researching online, there are just too many things about cells. Anyone have any idea what I should read about? It's for my anatomy class. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Marie. I'm thinking if you Google "Cellular Biology" you'd come up with what the prof is looking for such as Cellular Biology: Introduction

    Other things to look at would be prokaryotes and eukaryotes, cellular functions, cellular metabolism, membrane transports: cellular intake and output, celluar reproduction, cell-to-cell adhesions, cellular communication and signal transduction, tissues. Good luck.

    marie. . .i was trying to post these links for you when the system went down for the software upgrade several hours ago. i'm sorry i couldn't get these posted earlier for you. here are some links for you to check out:

    http://www.msjensen.gen.umn.edu/webanatomy/ - the original web anatomy site presented by the university of minnesota. it is the mother lode of anatomy pictures to label from the university of minnesota web anatomy site. the links on the left side of the page will take you to more links of all kinds of anatomy pictures for you people who want practice labeling anatomical diagrams! it is organized by body systems, but includes sections on cells and medical terminology. knock yourself out!

    http://www.kensbiorefs.com/humphy.html - here is a page of links to more specific links to get information on the various body systems - check the links on the left side of the page for links to information on cells chemistry, structure and function - there is extensive information to access from this site

    http://publications.nigms.nih.gov/insidethecell/ - inside the cell from the national institute of health, an 84 page publication - this is a very booklet put together with lots of nicely drawn pictures of the cell.

    http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/site...ew0/index.html - the site of the textbook holes's human anatomy and physiology, 10th edition on line learning center. chapter 3 is on cells. chapter 4 is on cellular metabolism. you will find flashcards, labeling exercises, quizzes and an outline of the material that was in the chapter of the book at each chapter site on this website.
