BISC110/112- Introduction to Cell Biology- Spring 2011


Series 3 - Photosynthesis (Labs 8-10) Objectives:

In this series of three weeks of experiments you will learn:

  1. How photosynthetic pigments are harvested and used in vivo in converting light energy to chemical energy
  2. How to extract, separate, measure, and analyze photosynthetic pigments
  3. How to use an artificial electron acceptor to measure an aspect of photosynthesis in vitro
  4. How to investigate a variable that might affect the rate of electron transport in photosynthesis
  5. How to write an original scientific research report

Lab 8: Photosynthetic Pigments
Lab 9: The Hill Reaction
Lab 10: Variables Affecting the Hill Reaction
