Now cancer can be investigated in the lab, not just discussed in your classroom. Students safely study the various aspects of cancer cell growth with this totally self-contained kit (a fresh carrot will be required, and is not included). Students explore various aspects of cancerous cell growth and learn to explain the differences between a normal cell and a cancer cell, describe similarities and differences between animal and plant cancers, identify cancer cells, identify a plant cancer or gall, and research current theories on the causes of cancer. Students grow their own sunflower plants; then induce crown gall by inoculating plant tissue with Agrobacterium tumefaciens, which is required for inducing the cancerous growth. Students then do a Koch's Postulates Experiment: Inducing Cancer in Carrot Tissue. Target grades 9 to 12, but can also be used at the college level. Instructions included for acquiring required permit; coupon item ships upon request and only in Continental US. Allow time for these processes.
