Cell Cycle and Cancer

The goal of these multi-week activities is to use Cancer Biology as a theme to introduce concepts in the cell cycle, cell biology, genetics and signal transduction.

These activities are appropriate for high school and Introductory Biology classes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the different stages of the cell cycle.
  2. Estimate the duration of the different stages of the cell cycle from microscopic examination of onion root tips slides.
  3. Relate deficiencies in cell cycle regulation to development of cancer
  4. List the names, chromosomal location and functions of genes identified in various types of cancer
  5. Describe how mutations in cancer driver genes can result to abnormal cell biology and development of cancer cells
