This week we're working closely with Cornell University on a new lab they are working on called ASSET. We are observing characteristics and behavior in the single-celled protist, Tetrahymena. Today we learned a little about them and noted observations under our microscopes. We learned that they move by cilia, twist while swimming, have observable organelles, and are about 50 microns long.
