Individual Assessment

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

The journals: "The Journal of Cell Biology," "BMC Cell Biology" and "Public Library of Science" allow the reuse of their content as long as they are referenced appropriately. --Samantha Cabrera 00:04, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

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

euchromatin --Samantha Cabrera 00:52, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

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

In order to know the hazards associated with research chemicals, one must refer to a Materials and Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). --Samantha Cabrera 06:42, 24 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.

An example of a commercially available adhesion protein antibody is the connexin 26 (O-24) Antibody. It is a rabbit polyclonal IgG. Connexins are gap junction proteins that assemble to form gap junctions in vertebrates.

Lab 5 : Complete the knockout methods handout given out in the laboratory.

(Handout completed)

Lab 6 : Comment on (a) any differences that you may see in the phenotpye of tropomyosin 4 (Tm4) overexpressing and control B35 cells and (b) explain how potential changes in the phenotype may result from the overexpression of tropomyosin 4.


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

Air: This is very easy to prepare with minimum equipment required.

Water: This allows the visualisation of live cells since they are placed in their natural liquid medium.

Oil: This provides the best visualisation of cells as they removes any particles from air or dust between objective and specimen.

Lab 8 : Your assessment item is to critically review all other group projects. Use the Group Assessment Criteria as discussed in the lab. Record your peer assessments on each group talk page, with your signature. Add the project title and a brief comment to your own page.

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

A technological bottleneck common to all NGS platforms is the amount of time and resources required for template and library preparation. Template and library preparation are time-consuming and subjected to sample loss.--Samantha Cabrera 03:23, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
