  • So far our laboratory exercises have been primarily focused on prokaryotic organisms—those that lack a nucleus and other membrane-bound organelles. However, there are other types of eukaryotic microorganisms that exist in nature, some of which cause human disease. In this exercise we will examine representative types of eukaryotic microorganisms: fungi, protozoa, and parasitic worms (helminthes), and learn about the diseases that they cause.
