Lab 1

  1. Add your own student page to the site.
  2. Add your signature for Lab attendance.
  3. Add a sub-heading.
  4. Add an external Link.
  5. Add an internal Link.

Lab 2

  1. On your own student page upload an nucleus image with the reference using the Pubmed formatting shown in the practical class tutorial last week.
  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.

Lab 3

  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.


Lab 4

  1. Identify an antibody that can been used in your group's transport project.
  2. Identify the species deriving the antibody.
  3. Identify the working concentration for the antibody.
  4. Identify a paper that has used this antibody.

Lab 5

Knockout exercise (/20)

Lab 6

Cytoskeleton exercise


Lab 7

Confocal Worksheet

Lab 9

You are a research scientist who has isolated cells that are growing in tissue culture. These normal cells when in their normal organ/tissue die after 2 weeks and are replaced as part of that organ/tissue's normal function.


With your group design an experiment(s) that would identify how (the mechanism) these cell would normally die.

  1. Write a hypothesis that you are going to test.
  2. Write aims of your experiment.
  3. Identify key techniques and procedures used in your investigation (Spell these out in some detail).
  4. Identify suppliers that have resources that you will need for your study (create links to the supplier resource pages, kits, antibodies etc).
  5. Now prepare a flow diagram of how the experiment will be carried out and analysed.
  6. What will different experimental results (outcomes) mean.

Lab 11

  1. How many Gbases (Gb) would you require to sequence the human genome to 40x coverage?
  2. Describe an advantage of using next-generation sequencing technology over microarrays to study gene expression?

Lab 12

  • Stem Cell paper reviews.

Assessment Marks

Group 1: 17/20 Really good summary and presentation of data. Students demonstrated understanding. Really good slides, not too much text, good talking through figures. Presentation of results was sometimes a bit unclear, and students read. But very good effort!

Group 2: 13/20 Adequate presentation. Students summarised data well, but sometimes a bit hard to follow, and students did not demonstrate thorough understanding of all technology. Lots of text, not so many figures, and students read most of the presentation.

Group 3: 19/20 Excellent highly professional presentation. Really good concise and comprehensive representation of the article. Students have read beyond the article , and discuss these data in light with other recent gene editing CRISPR article. Good slides, good talking through figure. Make sure not to read out the presentation.

Group 4: 15/20 Good presentation especially given students had to stand in for one missing student. Good summary, good slides, students demonstrated understanding. Would have been good to see more images in results section, and organisation of presentation could be improved (results (table) were discussed in discussion section).

David Loddel: 18/20
