Week 7 Feedback

You have made a very nice attempt to incorporate O2 consumption and CO2 production into our chemostat model. Some of your parametric choices may have limited the applicability of your results, however, and it is difficult to interpret your simulations.

  • In almost every simulated case, you achieve the "no yeast" equilibrium. This typically happens if the flow rate through the reactor is too high relative to the production of yeast. You can see that the in-flow and residual glucose and ammonium concentrations match up.
  • The parametric values we gave the class for Week 5 produced results that were at least close to those in the ter Schure et al paper from journal club.
  • The model still lacks a mechanism for switching between fermentation and respiration.
  • We would like for you to (1) repeat your simulations with parameters from Week 5, checking to see if you get non-zero yeast in equilibrium, and (2) provide some pencil-and-paper analysis of the steady states to verify (1).

Week 3 Feedback

Thank you for submitting your assignment on time. Your definitions and outline were complete. In the future, please either put your citations next to the individual definitions or use in text citations to refer to the citations in the references list. Also, please add the DOI to the citation style for journal articles. Because Google Scholar does not provide them automatically, you will need to get them from the article website or PubMed.

Did our discussion in class clear up what the Northern analysis was about? If not, please let me know.

Week 1 Redux

I reviewed the updates to your Week 1 Assignment. All of the requested changes were made on time. You wrote something in the summary field for 48 of the last 50 contributions, excellent work!

Week 1 Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your journal entries on time.
  • You completed all the tasks in the assignment, except for the following:
    • You wrote something in the summary field 30 out of 39 times on your user page (77%). That is pretty good, but we are aiming for 100%.
    • You used the wrong wiki syntax for a link to an external site. Remember link to an internal site on the OpenWetWare wiki use double square brackets and links to external sites use single square brackets.
    • You added the category to your user page directly, instead of to your template.
    • Your template was not invoked on your user page. As discussed in class today, you should make a list on your template of all the course assignment pages, your individual journal entries, the shared class entries, and a link to your User page, as well as the category, mentioned above.
    • The link from your user page to the shared journal was missing because you did not invoke your template on your user page.
    • Don't forget to sign your academic honesty statement with your wiki signature.
    • A references section is required for all individual journal entries, with a citation to the assignment page if no others are needed.
  • You can make up the points you lost on this assignment by completing these requested changes by the Week 3 deadline, midnight Feb. 2.
  • I'm glad the Stewart reading changed your mind about being a mathematician!

Talk responses

  • Does statistical analysis show that there is a large difference between biological systems under stress and biological systems not under stress? *Cameron M. Rehmani Seraji 00:00, 17 January 2017 (EST):


That's a big question, and sadly the real answer is "it depends." The nature and magnitude of the stressor is key. For the most part, the answer is "yes," biological systems do tend to respond to stresses. Think of your own heartrate at rest as opposed to sprinting or your physiological response to standing in a walk-in freezer without a coat.

Please see my response to your question on my user talk page. &mdash Kam D. Dahlquist 18:23, 24 January 2017 (EST)

Hello, Cameron M. Rehmani Seraji! This is a welcome message from OpenWetWare. By the way, we've announced you on the home page! You can leave messages to any OWW member by editing their User_talk pages like this one. And don't forget to personalize your User Page so that we can get to know you better! We've included some tips below to get you started.

Basic Wiki Instructions

  • Don't be afraid to edit! As with all pages on the wiki, all versions are saved so its easy to undo. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
  1. Start off by clicking the 'edit' button to the right of this section, or at the top of the page.
  2. Now you should see the text of this section as text within an editor box. There are several buttons in the editor box, but don't worry about those for now. Just type something in the box, scroll down to the bottom, and hit the 'Preview' button.
  3. You should see the web-page and text box views, but now with your edits! Don't forget to save your changes by clicking 'Save Page'!
  4. Editing pages is as easy as that. There are of course many ways to format your text. The easiest way to learn is to find an OWW page with the formatting you like, click on the edit button again, and see for yourself how it was created in the text box. Here's an extensive list of formating examples. Or look at this OpenWetWare introductory tutorial.
  5. When you are done, remove these instructions by clicking the edit button for this section again, erase everything you see in the text box and click 'Save Page'. (And remember you can always retrieve these by clicking on the 'history' tab at the top of this page.)

Note that these instructions apply to any page on OWW. Feel free to contribute to OWW by editing pages to add content, update them, or even correct mistakes. OWW relies on an active community to manage our growing resource of open access information, and we need your help!

Personal/Lab Info

We have gone ahead and filled in some information you provided us in your membership application on your User Page. Please take a moment to embellish this and tell the community a little more about you. Put links to your lab pages, your projects and your interests. If you run out of ideas, take a look at some of the other User pages. For example, check out User:Julius_B._Lucks, User:Jason_R._Kelly and User:Reshma_P._Shetty.

You'll also notice that we have put an 'image' placeholder at the top of your User Page. We encourage you to upload an image of yourself to give OWW a more personal feel. To upload an image, click on the Upload file link on the left-hand side (toolbar). Choose a file from your computer, and remember the file name. After you have uploaded the image, you should see it loaded on its own page. Go back to your User Page, click on edit, and replace 'OWWEmblem.png' with the name of your file that you have uploaded in the second line of this page.
