BioMed III visits Ochsner Lab
Mr. Taffaro's BioMed III students recently visited Ochsner Hospital to conduct labs to determine the differences between normal and cancer cells. In the first unit students carried out a chromosomal analysis by preparing microscope slides with normal and HeLa cervical cancer cells stained to visualize the chromosomes. Students observed differences in chromosome number and structure between the two cell lines. In the second unit students carried cytological and DNA analyses, again in context of cervical cancer. Students interpreted test data in order to make a prediction about HPV DNA testing results.
