Week 12 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • When answering the questions about how many genes were in profile 27 versus how many genes were expected, the two numbers you reported were flipped.
  • I was unable to review your GO list and Gene list for profile 27 because the files you uploaded to LionShare were not the right ones; the assignment asked for the output files from STEM. Your file that said "GO" in the name was actually a gene list.
  • Also, you did not list the 10 GO terms (or their definitions) on your page, so I wasn't entirely sure which terms you were talking about.
  • In your paragraph where you interpret the GO results, it would be better to discuss all of the terms in more detail, instead of just saying they are consistent with the review article. Why are they consistent? Why does the cell need to do these things during cold shock/recovery?
  • Please make sure you link back to the actual assignment page from your individual journal page.

Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • There are a few of things that you need to fix on your individual user page and shared journal page. Please make these changes by next week's journal deadline (midnight, February 8) to earn back the points you missed on this assignment.
    1. You need to put the complete street address for your box at LMU.
      1. I do not have a box at LMU. Is this an issue I should resolve?
        • No. How about making your contact address the Mathematics Department since you are a biomath major? The point behind this requirement was to have a "professional" address to which people could send you correspondence. Kam D. Dahlquist 15:59, 4 February 2013 (EST)
    2. On the Week 1 shared journal page, make a link back to your user page at the top of the section where you answered the questions.
      1. Complete.
    3. You are using the summary field the majority of the time. The goal is to fill it out every time you make a change.
      1. I will work hard to remember this.
    4. Your template is missing. Please create one and invoke it from your user page and all of your individual journal pages. It should contain links for each of the class assignment pages, your journal pages, and the class shared journal pages. It is also helpful to put the class category on it as well.
      1. I had created a template in the first assignment, and used it that week to create the individual journal page for Week 2. I had thought the template was for all new pages, not for the main page. Sorry about that. I have now incorporated the template into my main page. I have also created a link to the template on my main page.
        • Ah, I see your template now. Actually, it would be useful for you to take the section "Useful Links" and put it on your template page instead. You will need to create links to the assignments and journal pages for each assignment and it will save you time to include them on your template instead. Also, you can put the class category on your template so you won't ever forget to put it on your page. Kam D. Dahlquist 16:01, 4 February 2013 (EST)

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • Your analysis and presentation is very well done. I would like, with your permission of course, to point the other students to your uploaded file. The clarity of the parameter matching to the graphs made for easy reading.
  • Could you imagine an equation for the waste created by the cells? How would it feed back into cell mortality?

Elizabeth, I answered your question on my user talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 19:39, 24 January 2013 (EST)

You asked: "Hello Professor Fitzpatrick,

If you had to change careers, what would you choose?

Thank you, Elizabeth Polidan 22:35, 21 January 2013 (EST)"

My answer: Wow, that's a tough one. I'm pretty curious overall (and easily distracted), so I could imagine myself doing a lot of things. Financial economics would be interesting (and I'd hope lucrative). Polling and the quantitative side of politics might be fun. I'm too old to go back to school, or I could imagine doing medicine. If I could make enough money to feed myself, I'd build furniture or restore old cars.
