This assignment brief provides the basic structure and requirements for the preparation of your report. Further specific guidance will be provided in tutorial. You must read and follow the specific guidance in addition to this assignment brief. The report should be no more than 1500 words (word limit 1300-1500). The report should be structured like a research article in a scientific journal (see details below).
This section should typically represent 25% of your report. It should summarize the published background literature relevant to this study. It must explain what your experimental study is about, and place it in context of the previously published literature. It should state the scientific aim of the study.
This section should typically represent 25% of your report. Figures and table should be separately numbered, and be clearly labelled. You should include written text to explain your results obtained from the analysis of provided data in the form of graphs and tables. Results should describe your findings/analysis, but not interpret their meaning. Don’t forget to make a figure legend!
This section should typically represent 35% of your report. You should interpret your results, explaining what they indicate. Don’t forget to mention the value of Vmax and Km which you obtain from the plot. You should compare your findings to previously published findings or your expected findings, and should place your results in the context of published scientific literature.
You should include peer-reviewed scientific journal articles or textbooks as sources. These should be listed in the correct University of Bedfordshire Harvard Referencing format in a single reference list:
Students are reminded of their responsibilities concerning academic integrity and that plagiarism (the use of others’ words, published or unpublished, and failing to acknowledge the influence of another’s work or attribute quotes to the author) is a serious academic offence. This is an individual assessment, so collusion is also an academic offence.
What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)
• Produce a scientific report according to expectations described in the assignment brief.
• Demonstrate understanding of the kinetic basis of enzyme activity in the laboratory report.
• Relate a relevant biochemical test to the clinical management of specific metabolic disease in
• the report.
How do I produce high quality work that merits a good grade?
A high quality lab report, should
• be created electronically using Microsoft word and contain graphs created electronically using Excel
• contain a title page giving the assessment title, unit code, assessment number, your student number and your final word count (excluding references)
• contain appropriately labelled tables and figures referred to in the main text
• contain appropriate examples of how calculations were performed
• Follow the word-limit requirement (1500 max excluding references)
How does this assignment relate to what we are doing in scheduled sessions?
This assignment is based on your findings from the scheduled practical classes and is directly related to the taught element delivered during lectures. More specifically, lectures related to Enzyme kinetics, Krebs cycles and different metabolic pathways that are producing acetyl CoA and entering in the Krebs cycle.
How will my assignment be marked?
Your assignment will be marked according to the threshold expectations and the criteria on the following page.
You can use them to evaluate your own work and consider your grade before you submit.
