#Mydiary- Dear diary, I would rate the last few days as a 7/10 (scoring is pretty arbitrary). Getting our Meiosis essays back was a good chance to see how im on track with the ammount of effort im putting in. I need to improve my hand writing drastically, there were at least two comments on the essay saying that the marker couldn't read what I was...
In the #MB1031 write up of the practical report how should we reference the diagrams given to us in the information sheets? I know one of them has a reference there but what about the first diagram of the Rsa1 sites and the last diagram showing the drawing of the autoradiograph?
#MyDiary - Membranes and Receptors #MB1004 seems to be the dark horse module of the year.. and i'm thinking that the exam is going to be alot harder than most of us think. Its the sheer volume of new information to take in and understand fully which is the tiring aspect of it, especially being "untaught" concepts from Alevels.
#MyDiary. Microbiology essay done, presentations coming along.. for once in this semester things are looking up! As a crew the celebratory lunch with everyone at the Dry Dock was well deserved.. and then the genes clinic where write up 4 is finally done :) The introduction to physiology #BS1006 this morning was really interesting and Dr Scott most
The #MB1031 talk yesturday was definately a help in clearing up a few points about the , mainly knowing that my Km values are similar :) However on one of my graphs i've had to extrapolate to get the x intercept, will that be a problem? Should I change the scale to get a smaller graph?
Is a bit annoyed that the #BS1011 feedback and instructions they arn't in Microsoft xl format. It means that most of the instructions are in different places and you have to waste time searching for them..
#MyDiary.. The last few days have shown that I need to stay on top of my work. We're now building up on assignments and have the pressure of finishing #BS1011 before thursday. It didnt help that the help session was packed and everyone didnt get alot of time with the staff. Getting my results was great! It definately shows im on track, now just to
#MyDiary. As per usual we've hitting the ground running and the assignments are already starting to build up. I think I preferred the exam period.. at least we actually got layins then, as opposed to our very heavy timetable with 10am being the only "layin" of the week. However im finding the content of the modules very exciting and alot more
Whilst doing some revision on thermodynamics for #CH1070 I found this useful website http://www.chem.purdue.edu/gchelp... - the answers are at the bottom of the page and it covers all of what we've done in thermodynamics.
I had no idea that pharmacogenomics was how the breast cancer drug herceptin was discovered. This relates to our #MB1030 essay as the drug was developed through the study of genomics and the HER-2 factor. The ethical considerations of cost vs lives really came to a climax in which primary care trusts fought the decision made by the national
Found a good site which relates to the genomics essay #MB1030 - It demonstrates the types of mutations occuring within a specifc type of cancer and how hopefully every cancer patient can have specific treatments depeding on their genetic variation. http://www.sciencedaily.com/release...
I've almost finished the water essay in #BS1015 and some of my material has come from Prof Schwabe's lectures- hydroysis of pyrophosphate to 2x orthophosphate, essential in keeping the position of the reaction to the right for dNTP to be added to the complementary sugar phosphate strand. - any ideas of how to reference this material?
