Hi, I have attached the questions, which refer to the case study and table in the Question 2 document. As the question states, the only reference and information used must be from the module material, which I’ve also attached as a separate document. The question document states where the information for the question is in the module material. There is also word limits under each question.
Thanks 🙂

Format of dissertation is is attached as additional material.
Brief Description of project: Tracking the movement of intracellular vesicles in mice, comparing two cells types, one with SOD1 mutation and the other is Wild Type.
The project will use open-source tracking software (software : Image J Fiji ) to measure Axonal Transport.
‘Results’ section of dissertation requires the analysis of Axonal transport, from watching and analysing movies (minimum 2 movies per mice) of Axonal Transport results which have been conducted from 8 experiments. The breakdown of the 8 experiments are as follows:
SOD 1 :
Animal 1
Animal 2
Animal 3
Animal 4
Wild Type:
Animal 1
Animal 2
Animal 3
Animal 4
Tracking is required for each movie, tracking can be obtained from the “TrackMate” plugin feature. This is to record the movement of the cells. When tracking please do not track stationary cells, that are not moving, which can be identified as dark pink circles in the movies. A manual on how to use the Trackmate can be found on the Image J Website. A minimum of 10 tracks per animal, so 80 tracks in total are required, this is to ensure data is robust and can be analysed thoroughly. After this, Average graphs are required comparing SOD1 and Wild types us Mean Speeds from the Axonal transport ( Mean speed doesn’t have to be calculated as Image J software provides these results) Y axis on the average graph is ‘Average Track speed Micron/Sec” and X is animal number and whether it is SOD1 or Wild type.
Use the accumulated data above to create Kymographs and one statistical test (e.g a T-Test).
