High School West students in Sara Albanese’s Project Lead the Way Principles of Biomedical Science worked with samples from the HeLa cell line to create a chromosome spread. HeLa cells are the oldest and most commonly used human cell line, isolated in 1951. Cells were dropped onto a slide to release the chromosomes, or genetic material, and then stained so the cells and chromosomes would be visible under a microscope.
