In the last module, we discussed the legal use of DNA analysis in forensic medicine. In this discussion, we will take a look at some of the internal machinery of the cell. Organelles are essential for specific functions associated with a cell. For example, you would expect to find an abundance of mitochondria in a cell involved in energy requiring process, such as active transport of an ion. Select an organelle and discuss what functions might be effected in the body if this organelle was defective.
