Crime Scene PCR Practical

PayPal Acceptance Mark

Order Details
Brief Description Of Assessment Task
Please read carefully the requirements for the practical report as given below and refer to the marking criteria for any other details of what is required for this practical report. You will carry out three laboratory practicals, one involving gathering evidence from the Crime Scene, next is performing PCR of crime scene sample and suspect DNA extracted by the forensic laboratory at UoB and the last one separating your PCR products by electrophoresis (see attached laboratory protocols for details).
For the assessment you will be expected to prepare a laboratory report describing the PCR and electrophoresis practicals. The report should be no more than 1500 words. Excessive word counts will negatively affect grading. The lab report should be structured like a research article in a scientific journal (see details below)
Outline of Report Structure
Your lab report should contain six sections; Case Record, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion and References. Each section should be clearly labelled. Clarity of English language and presentation is essential throughout.
Case Record:. It should include initial thought of the case, witness statement, SSU submission form and log sheets photos/sketch.
Introduction: It should summarise 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.
Method: It should briefly summarise how you did your experiment. It should be written in the past passive tense and in paragraphs. It should contain sufficient detail to allow someone else to reproduce your experiment, but avoid unnecessary detail.
Results: Data may be presented in tables or figures (graphs, diagrams, or photographs) as appropriate for your particular experimental study. Figures and tables should be separately numbered, and be clearly labelled. You should include written text to explain what your findings are and what is shown in the figures and tables. Results should describe your findings/observations, but not interpret their meaning.
Discussion:. You should interpret your results, explaining what they indicate. You should evaluate the quality of your data and the reliability of the experimental technique. You should identify any problems with the technique or data (if any exist) and suggest possible solutions. 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.
References. You should include at least five peer-reviewed scientific journal articles or textbooks as sources. These should be listed in correct Journal of Cell Science format in a single reference list. The reference list should only contain sources that have been cited appropriately – eg (Smith, 2010) – in the main text of your report.
Grading Of Work And Feedback
The report will be marked according to the attached mark scheme, which explains our expectations in relation to the assessment criteria (quality of scientific understanding and analysis, issue handling and argument construction, critical evaluation and discussion, written expression and structure, and use of literature and referencing)
