Cell Types and Viruses

1. Collect the pencil, colored pencils, and paper, then open the Cell/Virus Components Tracing Guide.

2. Clear enough space to be able to draw. Designing a Prokaryote 1. Select a cell shape (1–3) on the Cell/Virus Components Tracing Guide, and draw it on the paper. This shape represents the prokaryote’s cell membrane.
2. Most prokaryotes have cell walls. Draw a thick line around the cell membrane to represent the cell wall.

3. Draw a magnified view of a small section of the cell membrane and cell wall (example, 35). Make a tiny box around this section, and draw lines connecting this box to a larger box. The larger box is called an inset, and it is a magnified view of the contents of the smaller box.

4. Choose from among the following options: a basic cell membrane (38), or a cell membrane with isoprene units (39). If the prokaryote has a basic cell membrane, draw either the gram-positive (36) or gram-negative (37) image in the inset box. These insets include representations of both the cell wall and cell membrane.

  1. Explain what the change in volume of the dialysis tube indicated. Describe what happened when the volume increased and when the volume decreased.
