Product Description
Preparation of Chromosome Squashes
Biology or Life Science Lab for Grades 9-12


In this lab, students will grow onion roots, and use the cells from the root tip to make a chromosome squash slide. Cells in the root tip are rapidly dividing by mitosis in order to make the root grow in length.

Purpose:
• To learn the technique of making chromosome squashes.
• To observe chromosomes in recently living cells.
• To determine if the rate of cell division correlates with the growth of the plant.

PLEASE NOTE: This lab is also sold in a bundled package which can be viewed here: Mitosis and Meiosis Complete Unit Plan Bundle
