|Lab 1 Assessment - Researching a Topic|
|In the lab I showed you how to find the PubMed reference database and search it using a topic word. Lab 1 assessment will be for you to use this to find a research reference on "fertilization" and write a brief summary of the main finding of the paper.
|Lab 2 Assessment - Uploading an Image|
OK you are now in a group
Initially the topic can be as specific or as broad as you want.
Chicken embryo E-cad and P-cad gastrulation
|Lab 4 Assessment - GIT Quiz|
Design 4 quiz questions based upon gastrointestinal tract. Add the quiz to your own page under Lab 4 assessment and provide a sub-sub-heading on the topic of the quiz.
An example is shown below (open this page in view code or edit mode). Note that it is not just how you ask the question, but also how you explain the correct answer.
|Lab 5 Assessment - Course Review|
|Complete the course review questionnaire and add the fact you have completed to your student page.|
|Lab 6 Assessment - Cleft Lip and Palate|
|Lab 7 Assessment - Muscular Dystrophy|
|Lab 8 Assessment - Quiz|
|A brief quiz was held in the practical class on urogenital development.|
|Lab 9 Assessment - Peer Assessment|
|Lab 10 Assessment - Stem Cells|
|As part of the assessment for this course, you will give a 15 minutes journal club presentation in Lab 10. For this you will in your current student group discuss a recent (published after 2011) original research article (not a review!) on stem cell biology or technology.
|Lab 11 Assessment - Heart Development|
|Read the following recent review article on heart repair and from the reference list identify a cited research article and write a brief summary of the paper's main findings. Then describe how the original research result was used in the review article.
Belbin Model Team Roles
I would say I am a completer finisher because I am a perfectionist but, I am also an implementer because I plan ahead and do not like change especially if it "compromises efficiency or threatens well-established practices."
Fertilisation Lecture: What I found interesting
I thought it was interesting that both the sperm and the oocyte contain intracellular enzymes and organelles that affect the zona pellucida in different ways. The spermatozoa breaks down the zona pellucida through the acrosome reaction so that it can enter the oocyte and in response, the oocyte depolarizes and releases cortical granules onto the zona pellucida in order to make it impermeable to other sperm. These two reactions work in a way that only allows one sperm to fertilize the egg.
Group 2: Organization of the page is done really well, especially for Nephrogenesis and the different stages involved. There is a lot of good detail in each section, specifically the abnormalities section (it may help to break down the introduction of the abnormalities with an image however). The subheadings included show a good knowledge of the topic and guide the reader through kidney development. Good support of ideas using helpful images and timeline table of kidney development. I think the page would be more complete if the current research, questions for the future, and general info on the renal system were complete. Also, it may make more sense to put general information at the beginning to orient the reader (depending on what the “general info” entails). Some animal models and examples of signals involved in the “Genes Expressed” section would also help complete the page. For the images, there should be copyright information added, a description of the image, and the proper reference.
Group 3: Great detailing of the development and signaling processes involved, it really showed me that the group had extensive knowledge on this topic. In addition, there is a good balance of personal images (e.g. wnt signaling diagram) and web images which showed me that the group dedicated time to make sure the reader fully understood each aspect of the topic. Most images also are properly cited with copyright statements, references, and description (some are missing, but overall are done well). It was very helpful to include a glossary of terms at the end for the reader to refer to. An image for the cardiac looping steps would help to visualize steps. Information needs to be added for the notch pathway, sonic hedgehog, retinoic acid. While the detail is very informative, there is a lot of information and can be a little overwhelming. It might help to add more bullet points (with only essential information) or to edit some of the superfluous information. In addition, captions for the images would help so that the reader knows which image you’re referring to when referring to them in the text.
Group 4: Anatomy of the adult eye is the shining feature of this page because it is very detailed and is balanced by personal images (one or two web images also might be helpful). I like that the group used a lot of tables throughout the sections because it helps organize the essential information all into one--many need references however. For example, the abnormalities section (fix spelling) is done very well; the table is well organized and nicely arranged so that the images are labeled at the bottom instead of interrupting the table itself. Overall, there is a simple structure to the page that makes the page easy to read and it has a nice flow. There is missing information from stage 21-23 in the Carnegie stages table, as well as from parts of the eye components. Development of the eye components is informative but could be improved by adding visuals in each section. While there is a lot of helpful detail for overall eye anatomy, some information on signaling, current research, future questions and animal models would make it better. An introduction would also be beneficial.
Group 5: Lung histology and cardiovascular are beautifully drawn but maybe the terms could be bolded because it is a little hard to fully make out the labels on the diagrams. I like that you guys integrated both the information and diagrams together by referring to them in the text instead of just planting the image there without referring to it. It makes the page enjoyable to read. Also, referencing done throughout the abnormalities section is thorough and indicative of the extensive research done on it, good job. For the developmental timeline, it might help to move the pictures below the table--and label the images-- so that the table is only text and more easy to read all in one instead of having the images adding unnecessary spacing. This may be a personal preference however. For developmental signalling processes, both images containing information about FGF10 have the descriptions below them. It might help to add that descriptions to the images themselves so that they don’t interrupt the flow of that section. There is some information missing from current research, future questions, and glossary hat need to be completed as well.
Group 6: This page seems to have the one of the best organizations. All the sub headings needed for the project are included and completed (minus further questions). The introduction is a nice addition as it gives a roadmap to your page. The entire Basic Anatomy is informative and sectioned nicely into the most important topics--some of the images may be a bit too large however. I like that the information for the first and second trimester is separated, instead of clumping it all together. Cerebellum development, cell signaling, and key historical discoveries have a lot of text and might need some diagrams or tables to break up the text. Also it would help to put the key historical discoveries at the beginning so that the reader knows how it led to the information we know today. The neural development section should be moved below microanatomy and before early brain vesicles since it leads into that section. The
