Histochemistry & Histological Techniques
1. COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE: The
course is designed to emphasize the correlation between morphology and the
chemistry of cell and also to expose the students to the manner in which tissue
culture methods, principles and techniques are utilized in solving some problems
of cellular biology.
2. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: By the end of
the course, the student will be able to:
the relationship between the morphology and the chemistry of a cell.
the methods, principles and techniques used in tissue culture.
important enzymes presence in the cells and tissues.
the activities of enzymes and presence of macromolecules and metabolites in
normal cells and tissues.
the application and validity of histochemical and cytochemical techniques in
basic, applied and clinical research.
the usefulness of histological techniques in the field of cellular biology.
the various types of staining techniques used to culture tissue.
the various chemical composition of the tissue using special dye.
