Group Projects
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)

Cell Type (PuMed citations)

Below are the groups to which students have been randomly assigned. You should now on the project discussion page add your own suggestion for a specific topic. Once your group has agreed on the topic, add this as a heading to the project page before Lab 3.

Group Assessment Criteria

Group Assessment Criteria

  1. The key points relating to the topic that your group allocated are clearly described.
  2. The choice of content, headings and sub-headings, diagrams, tables, graphs show a good understanding of the topic area.
  3. Content is correctly cited and referenced.
  4. The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level using the student's own innovative diagrams, tables or figures and/or using interesting examples or explanations.
  5. Evidence of significant research relating to basic and applied sciences that goes beyond the formal teaching activities.
  6. Relates the topic and content of the Wiki entry to learning aims of cell biology.
  7. Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers and articulates how the Wiki could be improved (or not) based on peer comments/feedback. Demonstrates an ability to review own work when criticised in an open edited wiki format. Reflects on what was learned from the process of editing a peer's wiki.
  8. Evaluates own performance and that of group peers to give a rounded summary of this wiki process in terms of group effort and achievement.
  9. The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic and covered the key areas necessary to inform your peers in their learning.
  10. Develops and edits the wiki entries in accordance with the above guidelines.
Individual Lab Assessments
Lab 8 Assessment
2016 Lab 8 - Lab 8 Assessment (to be completed before Lab 9)
  1. Add your peer assessment to your own student page to the site.
  2. Add your peer assessment to each project discussion page to the site.
Lab 6 Assessment
2016 Lab 6 -
  1. Identify an antibody against your group blood cell protein that is commercially available.
  2. Add a link to the original data sheet page and identify the type of group blood cell protein.
  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.
Lab 2 Assessment
2016 Lab 2 - Super resolution microscopy
  1. Find a recent research article (not review) that uses super resolution microscopy technique.
  2. Write a brief summary of the paper (referenced) and what the super resolution microscopy technique showed.
    1. This should not simply be the abstract of the paper.
    2. This can be 2-3 paragraphs no longer.
  3. Include a super resolution microscopy image from the paper.
    1. Therefore the paper must be from a source that you can reuse.
    2. Image uploaded as in Lab 1 (summary box - description/reference/copyright/student image)
    3. Image should appear as a "thumbnail" (thumb) next to your paper summary (with citation legend) See Test page
Lab 1 Assessment
2016 Lab 1 - Lab 1 Assessment (to be completed before Lab 2) The test page I set up in the Lab
  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.
  6. Add an image from PubMed, PloS or BioMed Central journal related to prokaryote cellular component. Make sure it includes both the reference and copyright information, with the file and where it appears on your page.

What I've learnt today

Search Techniques

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.

Referencing Skills

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.)

Computers Skills

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

Megakaryocytes and their subsequent platelets are subjected to antibody production. One of these antibodies is known as PF4 Polyclonal antibody and is commercially available.

Commercial Company Supplier:

Species reacts against:


Types of Applications:

(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)

Group 2

  • 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.
