filled siwes logbook for microbiology Student

sample of a filled microbiology student siwes logbook

Why was the microbiology students’ logbook always empty? Because they spent all their time at the internship trying to figure out how to get out of doing actual work!

The logbook is a record of practical work or experience completed by a student during their siwes training. This article is mostly used by microbiology students, and those studying medical laboratory, as a way for students to document their hands-on learning and to reflect on their experiences.

Here is a sample logbook for a microbiology student completing a Scientific Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) placement:

Day 1:

  • Arrived at the laboratory and met with my supervisor, and my team.
  • Reviewed the lab’s safety protocols and received a tour of the facility.
  • Began reading through the literature on the project I will be working on, which involves studying the microbial communities in soil samples from different regions.

Day 2:

  • Continued reading about the project and discussed it with the team.
  • I prepared my first soil sample for analysis by sterilizing the sample and extracting the DNA.
  • Ran the DNA through gel electrophoresis to separate the different fragments.

Day 3:

  • Discussed the gel electrophoresis results and made a plan for the next steps in the project.
  • Began analyzing the DNA sequences using software tools to identify the different microbial species present in the soil sample.

Day 4:

  • Worked on analyzing the DNA sequences and comparing them to known microbial species in databases.
  • Presented my progress and findings to the lab group during the weekly meeting.

Day 5:

  • Continued analyzing the DNA sequences and identifying the microbial species present in the soil sample.
  • Began preparing a poster presentation on the project for an upcoming conference.

Week 2| Day 6:

  • Reviewed the results of my DNA analysis with the team and discussed the next steps for the project.
  • Began preparing a report on my findings and progress so far.

Day 7:

  • Met with my team lead to review the report and get feedback.

Day 8:

  • Continued working on the report and poster presentation.
  • Participated in a training session on how to use the lab’s new microscopy equipment.

Day 9:

  • Used microscopy equipment to analyze the microbial cells present in the soil sample.
  • Began preparing a presentation on the results of my microscopy analysis for the lab group.

Day 10:

  • Finished up the report and poster presentation and submitted them for review.
  • Presented the results of my microscopy analysis to the lab group.

Week 3| Day 11:

  • Met with the team lead to discuss the results of my analysis and the next steps for the project.

Day 12:

  • Continued working on the summary of my SIWES placement.
  • Attended a workshop on effective scientific writing.

Day 13:

  • Submitted the summary of my SIWES placement to my university.
  • Participated in a lab group meeting to discuss ongoing projects and plans.

Day 14:

  • Worked on analyzing the DNA sequences and comparing them to known microbial species in databases.
  • Began preparing a poster presentation on the project for an upcoming conference.

Day 15:

  • Continued analyzing the DNA sequences and identifying the microbial species present in the soil sample.
  • Worked on the poster presentation, including adding graphics and revising the text.

Week4| Day 16:

  • Reviewed the results of my DNA analysis and discussed the next steps for the project.
  • Worked on finishing up the report and preparing the poster presentation for the conference.

Day 17:

  • I participated in a training session on how to use the lab’s new microscopy equipment.
  • Used microscopy equipment to analyze the microbial cells present in the soil sample.

Day 18:

  • Began preparing a presentation on the results of my microscopy analysis for the lab group.
  • Continued working on the report and poster presentation.

Day 19:

  • Finished up the report and poster presentation and submitted them for review.
