This module introduces the calculation of refractive indices along a cell surface in the context of understanding the attachment of cells to surfaces. It is intended for an introductory biology audience.
Student Introduction: Fibrous elements of the cytoskeleton, including microtubules and filaments, help maintain cell shape. Cell shape is determined by the interaction of these elements with the surface to which the cell is attached.
