BIOLOGY; CYTOLOGY; PART 3 by Professor Fink

In Cytology; Part 3 Professor Fink describes Food Vacuoles, Lysosomes (“Suicide Bags”), Plant Cell Central Vacuole, fresh-water Protozoan Contractile Vacuoles, Mitochondria, 3 types of Plastids in Plant Cells (including Chloroplasts, Chromoplasts & Amyloplasts), and 3 microtubule-based structures (Centrioles, Flagella & Cilia). Reference is made to apoptosis (autolysis) and 4 examples are given (including formation of embryonic fingers & toes, atrophy of the womb at menopause, atrophy of a tadpole’s tail during metamorphosis & autolysis of viral-infected human cells). In this video, Professor Fink also describes mitochondrial & chloroplast DNA, the role of cilia in the respiratory tract and Fallopian Tubes.

  1. How much knowledge do you have on general chemistry and physics?. Would be fantastic if you could make a series of lectures on these subjects, just as brilliant as you have on biology. Please, let us know.

  2. Thanks for the great lectures professor Fink. I really enjoy when you teach by giving good examples. 

    I just want to notice that when you said that potatos (i'm assuming S. tuberosum) are part of the root system, actually it's part of the stem of a plant (a tuber). Onions are also part of the stem system (a bulb). On the other hand, sugar beats are part of the root system (tuberous root). They may just look like the same structure, but they differ on some morphological and anatomical aspects.
