ANAT2341 Lab 2: Introduction | Fertilization | Week 1 | Week 2 | Online Assessment | Group Project

Add the system name to your group page and email the course coordinator with your group and the selected topic.

You can now begin researching your topic and adding information to the Project Discussion page (remember to add your signature with any addition).

Suggested Main Topics

--Mark Hill 13:44, 1 August 2012 (EST) These are the 2 topics I suggested in the class. Students can add their own suggestions here. The main topic will be finalised in Lab 3.

  • Stem Cells - different types of stem cells.
  • Neural Development - different parts of the nervous system.
  • Sensory Development

Student Group Projects

2012 Projects: Vision | Somatosensory | Taste | Olfaction | Abnormal Vision | Hearing

Student Page

User:Z3330686 I will allocate you a group when I am sure of student numbers.

Last Year's Projects

2011 Projects: Turner Syndrome | DiGeorge Syndrome | Klinefelter's Syndrome | Huntington's Disease | Fragile X Syndrome | Tetralogy of Fallot | Angelman Syndrome | Friedreich's Ataxia | Williams-Beuren Syndrome | Duchenne Muscular Dystrolphy | Cleft Palate and Lip

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 embryology.
  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.

Project Guidelines

  • Divide the project into sections, that each member will work on.
    • Later you can all work together on the entree project.
  • Collect references, on your discussion page and prepare summaries.
    • This will help others in the group understand what the paper is about.
  • Collect images, on your discussion page that are correctly cited.
    • plaigarism and copyright issues will affect your final group mark.
  • Balance text and images, do not have too much of one or the other.
    • Remember this is an online project and not an essay, hold the readers attention.
  • Avoid Editing your project page simultaneously with other group members, this may crash the project page and make loading slow.
    • Make small edits save regularly, do not leave the page open in edit mode for long periods.
    • Organise times when you alone will be editing the project.
  • Avoid Wikipedia sourced content, you are permitted a maximum of 1 image from that source and no derived text.


Currently all students originally assigned to each group are listed as equal authors/contributors to their project. If you have not contributed the content you had originally agreed to, nor participated in the group work process, then you should contact the course coordinator immediately and either discuss your contribution or request removal from the group author list. Remember that all student online contributions are recorded by date, time and the actual contributed content. A similar email reminder of this information was sent to all current students.

Please note the Universities Policy regarding Plagiarism

In particular this example:

"Claiming credit for a proportion of work contributed to a group assessment item that is greater than that actually contributed;"

Academic Misconduct carries penalties. If a student is found guilty of academic misconduct, the penalties include warnings, remedial educative action, being failed in an assignment or excluded from the University for two years.

Please also read Copyright Tutorial with regard to content that can be used in your project.

Journal Sources

First Read the help page Copyright Tutorial

Open Access

A confusing term, generally used by commercial publishers, this allows research publications to be accessed and read online. The term may not (or may) mean that the material can be downloaded, saved or reused. You will often have to search around the publisher website for clarification, usually a link on the page to "Permissions" will mean that you will need to go through an application process before you know whether content can be reused.


BioMed Central

Public Library of Science

  • There are several cell biology relevant journals published by PLoS.
  • PLoS ONE
  • PLoS Biology
  • PLoS Medicine
  • Note: "Everything PLoS publish is freely available online for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use (with attribution) any way you wish."

Proceedings National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)

"Our guiding principle is that, while PNAS retains copyright, anyone can make noncommercial use of work in PNAS without asking our permission, provided that the original source is cited." PNAS Author Rights and Permission FAQs


Uploading Images

First Read the help page Images

A tutorial will be provided towards the end of the lab in uploading images.

The image must first be uploaded to the site.

  1. Open the left hand menu item “Toolbox” and click “Upload file” and a new window will open.
  2. Click the button ”Choose file” and navigate to where the image is located on your computer and double click the file.
  3. The window will now show the file name in the “Source filename” window.
  4. You can then rename the uploaded file in the “Destination filename” window.
  5. Add a description of the image to the “Summary” window. Note the description must include:
    1. An image name as a section heading.
    2. Any further description of what the image shows.
    3. A subsection labeled “Reference” and under this the original image source, appropriate reference and all copyright information.
    4. Finally a template indicating that this is a student image. {{Template:Student Image}}

Images not including the above information will be deleted by the course coordinator and be considered in the student assessment process.

Students cannot delete uploaded images. Contact the course coordinator with the file address.

Sample Image

--Mark Hill 13:42, 1 August 2012 (EST) This is the sample image I uploaded in the class. Note that as another student uploaded at the same time it is the smaller version that appears as the current image, not the version I had uploaded, look at the "File history" associated with the image.

Corneal Endothelial Cell N-cadherin Stained[1]


--Mark Hill 13:42, 1 August 2012 (EST) This would normally appear at the bottom of your project page.

  1. Ju C, Zhang K, Wu X (2012) Derivation of Corneal Endothelial Cell-Like Cells from Rat Neural Crest Cells In Vitro. PLoS ONE 7(7): e42378. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0042378 PLoS ONE


First Read the help page Referencing

All references used in making your project page should be cited where they appear in the text or images.

In page edit mode where XXXX is the PubMed ID number use the following code.

<ref name=”PMIDXXXX”><pubmed>XXXX</pubmed></ref>

For references not listed on PubMed, and text can be inserted between <ref></ref> tags.

Where the reference list will appear make a new section and on a new line the following code. <references/>

Known Referencing Error

  • Occasionally some very recent references (July-August 2012) may not yet be linkable.
  • When you try to save one of these references a blank page will load with the following error message:
"Fault: Could not open file tmp\pubmedcache/d4/ for writing, at Persistant::save"
  • Do not panic, you have not lost all your work. The reference is simply not available to be loaded on the Wiki. You will not be able to continue editing the page until you have fixed the reference causing this error.
  • Use the browser back button to return to the project page.
  • Edit the reference entry to just the reference PMID number <ref>PMID XXXX</ref>
  • You will be able to enter the complete reference manually later.
