2013 Projects: Group 1 | Group 2 | Group 3 | Group 4 | Group 5 | Group 6 | Group 7

  1. Do not remove this notice {{2013 Project discussion}} from the top of the discussion page.
  2. Newest student comments should be entered at the top of this current page under the subheading "Student Discussion Area" (you cannot edit the sub-heading title).
  3. All comments should begin with your own signature button, that will automatically enter student number date/time stamp.
  4. Do not use your full name here in discussion, if absolutely necessary you may use first names only.
  5. Do not remove or edit other student comments.
  6. Use sub-headings if you want to add other draft information, images, references, etc.
  7. Only your own group members should edit this page, unless directed otherwise by the course co-ordinator.

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.

Week 2 Project topic selection, preliminary researching on the topic.

Week 3 By the next practical class (after the mid-session break) there should be sub-headings and content on your actual project page and interactions between individual group members on this discussion page.

Week 4 Each group member should now have selected 4 papers relevant to their section of the project. These, or any other papers, can now be used to generate content (text, images and tables) within the project page. Students can also work on additional sub-headings on the project page.

Week 8 Peer assessment of group project work.

  • Each student will carry out an assessment of all Group projects other than their own.
  • This written assessment should then be pasted on the actual project discussion page and your own individual student page.
  • The peer assessment for each project should be concise and include both positive and negative critical analysis of the current project status.
  • The actual assessment criteria (shown above) can be used if you like.
  • Each student assessment should be your own work and be completed before the next Lab.

--Z3331556 (talk) 22:36, 27 March 2013 (EST) I have found some good info to start off with for the cell-cycle control system topic Components of the Cell-Cycle Control System. I was also brainstorming some topics we can discuss in this topic, was thinking maybe:

  • Introduction: where we can summarise the parts of the cell cycle and what it is
  • Historical Background: where we can discuss when and who developed it, how it was developed, how it's been modified during the years etc.
  • summary of each of the phases of the cell cycle
  • detail on the check points
  • abnormalities that can arise if cell cycle isn't controlled
  • recent/current research into the cell cycle

That's all I can think of so far

--Z3331556 (talk) 00:07, 26 March 2013 (EST) Hi all! I think both those topics are great! And yes they definitely will cross into cancer so that's something to explore. I think I'm leaning towards the cell-cycle control system because there should be plenty info on that, we can look into the check points in cell-cycle, what the repercussions are when control mechanisms fail and talk about some of the abnormalities that may arise, we can also compare the cycles of prokaryotes with that of eukaryotes etc etc.

I might just add the topic to the student project page to make sure we have something up there and that no one takes it, we can always change it whenever, hope that's ok with you guys

ill see you on Thursday :)

--Z3376100 (talk) 15:30, 22 March 2013 (EST) Hi everyone (FN)! So I had a look under the Cell division content and I came across the following sub-topics: The cell-cycle control system S Phase M phase control of Cell number and cell size Apoptosis (falls under control of cell number and cell size).

I personally find the following 2 interesting (as they probably have important implication in cancer):

The cell-cycle control system AND control of cell number and cell size

So what do you guys suggest we should do?
