Introductory CytogeneticsDr. Brian FristenskyOnline
| NA Pages
This note provides an
introduction to the structure of eukaryotic genomes, from the level of the
chromosome down to the level of the gene. Basic cytological techniques including
the use of the optical microscope will be covered and supported by laboratory
exercises. Also includes the application of cytogenetic and molecular techniques
in the study of cell division, karyotyping, chromosomal structure,
recombination, changes in chromosome number and structure, physical mapping and

The purpose of
this book is to present a reasoned case for regarding bacteria as living cells
with the same structure and functions as other living cells, and to correlate
the available information upon the various types of bacteria. Major topics
covered are: Surface Structures, The Bacterial Nucleus, Sexuality in bacteria,
Life Cycles in Bacteria, Macroformations, Evolutionary Relationships of Bacteria
and the genetics of bacteria.

Introduction to Cytology Specimen Collection Manual (PDF 30P)Blanchard Valley
| 30 Pages
This manual is intended to be used as a specimen collection
guideline for cytology. Each separate area of concern is included in a different
procedure. Therefore, items such as "transportation", "patient preparation", and
"preservation required" may differ from procedure to procedure.
