Lab 1 - What Cell Biology Journals allow reuse of acknowledged and correctly cited content?

The Journal of Cell Biology and BMC Cell Biology allow the reuse of their content provided the article is acknowledged and correctly cited, as does the Public Library of Science. --z3252833 00:52, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Lab 2 - What are the "light" regions of DNA within the nucleus called?

The "light" regions of DNA in the cell are called euchromatin, which is transcriptionally active decondensed or lightly-packed chromatin disseminated throughout the nucleus during interphase.

Lab 3 - How do we know the hazards associated with research chemicals?

The hazards associated with research chemicals are recorded on Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), copies of which are legally required to be kept in the laboratories using those research chemicals. Sheets record the chemical's name, its ingredients, its chemical and physical properties, hazard information, safety precautions and the manufacturer/importer's name and contact details. However, care must be taken to read Australian MSDS sheets as not all countries have the same safety requirements.

Information from the notes for Lab 3. --z3252833 07:30, 29 March 2010 (UTC)



Lab 4 - Identify a commercially available antibody to an adhesion junction protein, and also add a link to the antibody page on your own student page.

The anti-CDH20 (D-17) antibody available here: [1] appears to be a commercially available antibody against a cell adhesion protein. Rabbit polyclonal IgG. --z3252833 06:02, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Lab 7 - From today's confocal tutorial, identify an advantage to using each of the following objectives: Air, Water or Oil.

Air: Least preparation and cleanup needed; live specimens can be viewed.

Water: Live specimens can be studied, and a higher resolution can be achived than when using an air objective.

Oil: Can use a thicker cover slip; the highest level of resolution can be achieved, - more than using air or water objectives (though specimens must be fixed).

Lab 8 - Peer assessment

I'm present! --z3252833 06:15, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Peer assessment:

Group 1: Reviewed --z3252833 06:58, 8 May 2010 (UTC) Page was very informative and well researched; perhaps needs some condensing and simplifying and also improvement to picture citations.

Group 2: Reviewed --z3252833 03:53, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Page was overall great; comprehensive and easy to read, but with some picture citations needed.

Group 3: Reviewed --z3252833 07:08, 8 May 2010 (UTC) Page well-researched and easy to understand; diagrams need some copyright and glossary needs some work.

Group 4: Reviewed --z3252833 03:53, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Page had great ideas like links section; was well researched and comprehensively worded, but quite dense in parts.

Group 6: Reviewed --z3252833 03:56, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Page needs a little work in terms of format and introduction, but research is solid and diagrams comprehensive (though student diagram should be labeled).

Group 7: Reviewed --z3252833 04:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Really very detailed, and as such quite dense; perhaps needs more visuals and formatting to make it interesting aesthetically.

Group 8: Reviewed --z3252833 04:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Well put together, but could benefit from moving pictures around some more and moving the glossary.

Group 9: Reviewed --z3252833 04:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Detailed but long with big slabs of text; could benefit from some formatting, condensing and summarising, and work on citation of pictures.

Group 10: Reviewed --z3252833 04:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC) Well written, formatted and cited; possibly the best one I've read.


Lab 9 - Microarray Lab: What is the technological bottleneck common to all next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms?

Totally present --z3252833 06:57, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

The common technological bottleneck in all NGS platforms is the library preparation procedure, which generally results in a significant loss of sample information with restricted throughput as a result of the many steps necessary for preparing a library. <http://www.epibio.com/newsletter/16-3_4-6.pdf> --z3252833 04:52, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Lab 11 - Stem cells lab 1

I was present, but I wasn't at a computer because I was involved in extracting the cells from the mouse spleen. I completely forgot to log on and say I was present. --z3252833 05:37, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
