Lab Help Pages
"A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales."
-Marie Curie
Christine Case  

These pages are designed to help you interpret your lab results and to understand biological concepts. The photographs on these pages cannot replace the experience gained from doing the experiments.
