Week 14 Feedback

  • I have reviewed your results from Week 14 and for the most part, I agree with your interpretations of your results.
    • In terms of explaining why certain genes had particularly good (or bad) fits, what is the spread of the datapoints for those genes. In other words, if there is a lot of variability, does that affect the fit?
    • With regards to explaining the differences in the weights and production rates between the two runs:
      • Do the genes that have differences have relatively more or fewer inputs to them? Are they connected (directly or indirectly) to CIN5?
      • Bear in mind that GRNsight is only reflecting back at you the differences in the weights between the runs. A difference in those values will cause the thicknesses of the lines to differ.

Week 11 Feedback Part 2

  • I have reviewed the rest of your Week 11 assignment.
    • In answer to your observation "It had the least amount expected genes. I’m curious as to why this is the case." Actually, profile 0 did not have the least amount of expected genes, profile 28 did. The software is computing a theoretical distribution of genes for all of the profiles so that it can compare observed and expected and derive a p value. I'm not totally sure what the algorithm for this is, but I am sure it is described in either the documentation for the program or the paper written about it.
    • I can't really give you any feedback on your stem results since you did not interpret them yourself and only listed definitions for two GO terms.

Week 11 Feedback Part 1

  • I reviewed your spreadsheet and found the error. In column N, you put a "4" instead of a "5" for the five replicates of of the t120 timepoint. The rest of your equations are all OK, so if you fix that one, you will have a correct spreadsheet.
  • A couple notes on your column headers:
    • You do not need "xbar" in the header for columns I through Q.
    • The column header for column R should read "wt_Bonferroni_p-value"
    • You need to add a column header to column S.
  • Please make these changes and upload the corrected spreadsheet to LionShare. Keep the same name for the spreadsheet so that it will overwrite the incorrect one.

Week 7 Feedback

  • Your Week 7 individual journal assignment was late by 51 minutes and your shared journal reflection was late by 10 minutes. For some reason, your shared reflection is no longer showing up on the page, I could only find it in the history.
  • Your individual journal page does not link back to your user page or to the assignment page. It is missing the category.
  • Your electronic notebook had no descriptive text at all. The intent of an electronic notebook is to record what you did so that you or somebody else could reproduce what you did based on the information there. You should have included the MATLAB files, a description of what values you used for each run of the model and why you chose them, and the the resulting plots and your interpretation of what they mean.
  • You needed to perform an analysis of the steady state.

Week 1 Redux

  • I reviewed your Week 1 assignment a second time and noted that you made no further changes to this assignment, except to fix the category.
  • I noted that your usage of the summary field has improved slightly; you have written comments in the summary field for 3 of the last 50 contributions you made. Remember, we are aiming for 100%.
  • I strongly urge you to go back and fix your template so that you can use it for subsequent assignments in this class. It is part of every assignment to have a set of links to the assignment page, your individual journal page, the class journal page, and back to your user page. If you put these on your template, then you need only invoke it on each new individual journal page.

Week 1 Feedback

Here is the feedback to your Week 1 journal assignment.

  • You were excused from completing the assignment by the Week 1 deadline because of issues with registering for an OpenWetWare account. However, your assignment is incomplete with many tasks left undone. Your shared journal assignment was completed well after the date by which you said you would finish the assignment.
  • The grade for this assignment is posted on the MyLMUConnect Grade Center for this course. You will be able to earn back the points you missed on this assignment by completing the requested revisions below by the Week 3 journal assignment deadline of midnight on Tuesday, February 3 (Monday night/Tuesday morning).
    • Every time you make a change to a wiki page, please type something in the summary field (found above the "Save page" button). It appears that you did not do this at all for this assignment.
    • Please link your name on the course People page to your user page.
    • For your e-mail address, you either need to make this an "mailto" link or create a link to e-mail you through OpenWetWare.
    • Please provide a list of upper division courses you have taken in biology, chemistry, math, and computer science that you have taken.
    • To make this page more like a professional resume or CV, you should provide additional information about your work experience such as jobs held, which companies, dates of employment.
    • Please provide any information about your personal interests and hobbies.
    • Please answer the questions as to which are your favorite aspects of biology and mathematics.
    • As of the Week 1 deadline, you did not create a new wiki page, although you have since created one.
    • Please link to an external web site.
    • You do not currently have any "third" level subheadings (three equals signs or more). Be sure to utilize this feature to organize content on your journal pages.
    • Please create a numbered list.
    • Please "comment out" a portion of your wiki code. The only comments that are there right now are the ones automatically generated by OpenWetWare when they created the page for you.
    • Please upload an image file and display it on your page.
    • Please upload a non-image file and link to it on your user page. Other students have uploaded resume's or scientific presentations they have done, for example.
    • You used the wrong category name for your page, due to a typo. The proper category is [[Category:BIOL398-04/S15]], not [[Category:BIOL98-04/S15]].
    • Your template is currently a "redlink" with no content on the page. Populate your template with lists of the Assignment pages, individual journal pages, and shared journal pages, as well as the course category. Then invoke your template on your user page and all subsequent individual journal pages.
    • Please link to Week 1 Assignment page. Note, if you fill out your template, you will easily be able to fulfill this part of subsequent assignments automatically.
    • Please remove the "I am a new user" template from your user page and remove the double helix picture (or replace it). You can also remove the OpenWetWare automated text from the bottom of this talk page.

I've answered your question on my User talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 21:32, 29 January 2015 (EST)

Answer from Dr. Fitzpatrick

You asked 'Dr. Fitzpatrick, what subjects of physics have you worked with?'

I've worked on a number of physically-based problems, but more from an engineering point of view. I've done some mechanics, particularly solid and fluid mechanics, mostly trying to infer material parameters from experimental observations, but in some cases designing algorithms to stabilize or otherwise control a system. For a lot of years, I've collaborated on laser beam control problems. These have involved using image sequences to point a laser at a target and using high-rate cameras and mirrors to remove platform jitter from tracking signals.

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.
