Dear friends, collaborators, relatives and other potential 
partners in my misery,


My apologies for bugging all of you with this, but I assume 
that many of you might have gone through pains I am just 
about to experience. 
Hence, my hope that you may be able, and willing, to help.

Thank you in advance.

I will be putting together a LABORATORY cell biology course 
for 3rd, preferably 4th year undergraduate students. I 
expect a class of in between 30 and MAXIMUM 50 students. 
I would appreciate suggestions on what type experiments one 
can design for such a class?  
I would prefer students DO experiments and not WATCH them 
being done.  I presume that the class could be split into 
three groups if such need arises.  
We have at hand two c-focal microscopes, four wide-field 
fluorescence microscopes, and quite a number of standard 
student-type bright field microscopes.

Of course, the experiments do not have to be restricted to 
microscopy, a simple, student-performed dissctions followed 
by tissue culture, for example, could be also implemented.

Any suggestion will help.

Thanks a lot!
