Lab 1 - What Cell Biology Journals allow reuse of acknowledged and correctly cited content? The Journal of Cell Biology, BMC Cell Biology, Public Library of Science --Erika Unsworth 06:14, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Lab 2 - What are the "light" regions of DNA within the nucleus called? The light regions are euchromatin- partially or completely uncoiled DNA (it is in its active form) --Erika Unsworth 06:05, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Lab 3 - How do we know the hazards associated with research chemicals? We look at the chemical on Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) --Erika Unsworth 06:39, 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. -- Cadherin-19 Antibody produced from rabbit polyclonal IgG, 100µg/ml (for humans) http://www.scbt.com/datasheet-84770-cadherin-19-p-18-antibody.html --Erika Unsworth 06:01, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Lab 6- Graph- z3254641.JPG --Erika Unsworth 08:14, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Lab 7 - From today's confocal tutorial, identify an advantage to using each of the following objectives: Air, Water or Oil. AIR: The simplest method to use. WATER: Most cell cultures are grown in aqueous solution so it suits many cultures. Furthermore, it has better resolving power than air. OIL: Highest resolving power (but only for fixed samples).

Lab 8- Review of group assessments

Group 1 Project - Fluorescent-PCR--Erika Unsworth 22:59, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Great use of pictures to break up the text! (keeps me interested)
  • Great structure- flows nicely!
  • Work needs to be proof-read (theres a few grammar mistakes etc. that others have highlighted)
  • Looks like some of the referencing is missing e.g. development section.
  • With the timeline, putting the dates in bold might make it more visually appealing? just an idea.
  • A glossary could be a nice finishing touch!

Group 2 Project - RNA Interference--Erika Unsworth 23:13, 11 May 2010 (UTC) Overall, I'm very very impressed with this page!

  • It was interesting to read
  • It flows very well- great structure!
  • Great use of formatting
  • The student-drawn diagram is amazing- clear & visually appealing!
  • The only down-side is that some referencing is missing e.g. in the mechanism section.

Group 3 Project- Immunohistochemistry --Erika Unsworth 23:27, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Good amount of content
  • Easy to understand
  • Student-drawn diagrams are very helpful
  • Great use of tables and formatting
  • Referencing needs to be fixed- the first image isnt referenced and some references aren't cited properly in the final reference list e.g. websites.

Group 4 Project - Cell Culture--Erika Unsworth 23:46, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Lots of referencing missing- glossary & within the bulk of the text.
  • I really like the helpful links section- unique touch!
  • Good structure and formatting.
  • Student-drawn flowchart provides a great overview.
  • Well written- easy for me to understand.

Group 5 Project - Electron Microsopy--Erika Unsworth 03:07, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Advised that there's a section on wikipedia help that explains how to make a reference list so that the same resource doesn't come up more than once.
  • A glossary might be a nice finishing touch.
  • Great how its applied to efforts at unsw! Very unique!
  • Great use of formatting, pictures and tables.
  • Easy to comprehend content.

Group 7 Project - Monoclonal Antibodies--Erika Unsworth 03:29, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Great structure and content- looks like a lot of effort has been put into this!
  • Need to fix up the referencing- some seem to be missing.
  • Thorough research- looks like plenty of resources were used
  • Content is easy to comprehend
  • Great use of formatting- makes your work easy on the eye!

Group 8 Project - Microarray--Erika Unsworth 03:39, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Content and language is great
  • Great use of images- I especially like the first black & white image (looks great next to the contents box!)
  • The structure and flow works well
  • I think the history section could be improved by putting the years in bold.
  • Overall, a great piece of work!

Group 9 Project - Fluorescent Proteins --Erika Unsworth 03:54, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Dot points etc. to try and break up the information are great
  • Some more pictures would be good
  • Glossary and references need some work
  • Overall, I'm pretty happy. It looks like a lot of time has been put into it.

Group 10 Project - Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer --Erika Unsworth 04:12, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Structure is fantastic
  • Content is great and easy to understand
  • Plenty of pictures and videos to help
  • Lots of references- looks like lots of research has been done
  • Definitely one of the best I've seen

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

The technological bottleneck is related to the preparation of libraries (which takes up both a lot of time and resources) http://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/v6/n10/abs/nmeth.f.269.html--Erika Unsworth 06:56, 19 May 2010 (UTC). It also relates to the NGS platforms producing vast quantities of data that the computer systems have difficulty processing in good time.
