Proteins Found in Fetal Pig Organs

Students will be investigating the proteins that are found in different types of tissues from their dissection of the fetal pig.  This will end the unit on the dissection of the fetal pig, but transition into the unit on tissues. The use of gel electrophoresis will enable the students to determine which proteins are found in different tissues. Read more about Proteins Found in Fetal Pig Organs
