2013 Student

From CellBiology


This page allows 2013 Students to access their own specific wiki page.

  • Please note that all changes including additions, deletions and edits are logged by the wiki using the identity set by your preferences.
  • For individual projects, specific comments about the course and for your own use, each student has their own wiki page using their student number as a title for the page.
  • Hint - you can quickly get directly to your own page on your own home computer by adding your student number to this link http://cellbiology.med.unsw.edu.au/cellbiology/index.php?title=User: and then bookmarking.
  • Project Referencing information on how to add a reference list to your page. Hint look at the page in edit mode to see how the page is formatted to get a reference list. I also do prefer the formatting as it appears on the PubMed website, as you can copy and paste.

I remind all students of UNSW course attendance requirements.

"If students attend less than eighty per cent of their possible classes they may be refused final assessment."

Lab Assessments

Listed below is only a brief description of the lab assessment, use the links to see full details of assessment requirements (found on the specific practical pages). Individual Assessment Results

  1. Lab 1 Assessment
    1. Upload an image from a Journal listed on the References page or from Biomed Central (http://www.biomedcentral.com) or PLOS Journal (http://www.plos.org/publications/journals) from a recent article image that relates to the difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotic cells.
  2. Lab 2 Assessment
    1. On your own student page and the Lab 1 uploaded image update the reference using the Pubmed formatting shown in the practical class tutorial (see also 2013 Group Test Project).
    2. Identify a recent research article (not review) that uses either confocal microscopy or super-resolution microscopy as one of the study's techniques. Explain briefly (1 paragraph) how the microscopy technique specifically contributed to the article's findings.
  3. Lab 3 Assessment
    1. Select 4 reference papers related to your selected topic sub-section. Read these papers and write a brief description of their findings and relevance to the selected topic sub-section. The reference along with your description should then be pasted on both your group discussion page and your own personal page.
    2. Select an image related to your selected topic sub-section (this can be from one of the 4 above or from elsewhere). The image should be uploaded (with all the required information: description, reference, copyright and student template) and pasted onto the project page sub-section and onto your own personal page.
  4. Lab 4 Assessment
    1. Identify an antibody against an adhesion junction protein that is commercially available.
    2. Add a link to the original data sheet page and identify the type of adhesion junction.
    3. Include the following information: type of antibody (polyclonal, monoclonal), species raised in, species reacts against, types of application uses, and if available any reference using that antibody.
  5. Lab 5 Assessment
    1. Complete the in-class assessment item on knock-out techniques. Hand in to practical class coordinator with name and student number.
  6. Lab 6 Assessment
    1. Complete the in-class analysis of cell morphologies.
  7. Lab 7 Assessment
    1. Complete the microscopy lab worksheet questions.
  8. Lab 8 Assessment
    1. Peer assessment of group project work.
  9. Lab 9 Assessment
    1. Complete the stem cell lab worksheet questions.
  10. Lab 11 Assessment
    1. Complete the microarray lab worksheet questions.
