This page was transferred from the Embryology Wiki on:
|This year's main topic is Blood Cell Biology. Each group should discuss with group members the specific sub-topic that will be covered by their project.
Here is a list of some of the cell types (Structure and Function)

What I've learnt today
I have learned how to search for information using online journal systems, such as Pubmed and Biomed. I have further learned how to refine my search process, by looking primarily for reviews or articles and how to change the number of journal links shown on the page from a minimum of 20, up to 200 links per page.
An example of this antibody being used a scientific study is in 'Antibodies to macromolecular platelet factor 4-heparin complexes in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia: a study of 44 cases' by Amiral, J. et al.
(Amiral, J., et al. "Antibodies to macromolecular platelet factor 4-heparin complexes in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia: a study of 44 cases." Thrombosis and haemostasis 73.1 (1995): 21-28.)
My computer skills have very much been expanded today. I have learned how to navigate between different sites using the html as opposed to a search engine, like Google. I have learned how to create a new wiki page and turn this page from a blank document to a functioning wiki page with links, references and text. I have learned how to utilize code to create headings and sub-headings and sub-sub-headings (and so forth) which neatly organizes the web page and forms a 'link-box' at the top of the page which can be used later to improve navigation on this page.
I have also learned how to link images that I have uploaded and referenced appropriately.
I have also learned how to reference in various ways. I can make a reference visible on the page from websites like Pubmed.
This is an example of how to use a visible reference

(5/5) need to use full application not acronym.
OK you were supposed to peer review all the other projects, not just one. This is a good detailed critical review and if you had done this for all the other projects, you would have had a high assessment, as it is I can only give you full marks for this single project assessment. (5/20)
- Introduction provided a succinct yet well-rounded overview of what to expect on the page.
- ' This page also discusses some current research being performed on red blood cells such as 'is the final UNFINISHED sentence.
- Whole page would be appropriate for another student’s reading/learning as your explanations are very good
- I really like your table and how it is sortable – it makes it easy to read as a table yet shows your ‘wiki skills’ too.
- Very good ‘Diseases and Abnormalities’ section, however, I believe a more appropriate title would be Pathology
- There is a lot of text and not much of a visual aide in some parts, particularly in the structure to function section. Maybe include some relevant images like EM RBCs or the like?
- There needs to be something more to break up the paragraphs of writing towards the end of the Pathology section.
- The title of 6.1 ' Eryptosis can help detect Parkinson's disease ' is not a good title – instead you should be more succinct like ' Eryptosis and Parkinson’s Disease ' or just write ' Parkinson’s Disease '. What you’ve got written there is like a thesis sentence, not really a heading.
- I think you should have a sentence briefly link malaria and sickle cell and note how despite the two individually being pathological, together they arguably form an evolutionary advantage.
- Where are the graphs?
- Spelling error: they are able to stay there for around 120days
- A glossary at the end would be a really good idea – it would also allow for a larger reading audience as the definitions are present for layman and newer student to clarify their knowledge
- ' Through recent research, it has been discovered that certain blood antigens predisposes individuals to an increased risk to certain diseases ' this sentence either needs to include brief examples or you need to have a definitive sentence in your pathology section linking to this Rhesus factor.
- ' The CO2 is then converted into bicarbonate HCO3- and a proton + by Carbonic Anhydrase ' is the + really necessary? Students know that protons are positive and I think it disturbs the flow of reading.
- Nice banner image - but I'm just checking that you have the rights to EDIT/ALTER it?
- Otherwise, very good start.
