This unit will look at how public engagement in science and technology might be achieved through science promotion. Science promotion and public involvement in policy making can require both formal and informal objectives: some are explicit and some are implicit, some are articulated at the planning stage and some are unexpected. These objectives can entail participation, engagement, knowledge exchange and learning – all of which require a degree of motivation by all parties.Author(s):

Organelle Isolation and Marker Enzyme Assay
Cells contain many specialized structures known as organelles which perform a variety of specific functions. To obtain precise information about the structure and functions of subcellular organelles, it is imperative to isolate them free from contaminating organelles. Marker enzymes are known to be localized exclusively in specific organelles and are used to monitor the separation of these organelles. In this exercise the homogenate of Dictyostelium discoideum will be fractionated by differentia
