End Date: Jul 14, 2018
Dissect insect tissues and maintenance of insect cell cultures.
Primary cell cultures will be created by isolating selected tissues and transferring them to culture flasks. The cultures will be reviewed periodically and numerous parameters will be monitored, including cell viability, attachment levels and approximate replication rates. Cells from the cultures will be passaged as needed.
