Week 2 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 2 assignment.

  • Thank you for completing the assignment on time.
  • You did not provide a link to the Week 2 assignment on your individual journal entry. You need to go back and add the list of assignment pages to your template (you just have your own journal entries and shared entries right now) so that you don't miss this in the future.
  • You made changes to the Summary field about 85% of the time; this is very good, but we want to make that closer to 100% of the time.
  • Your electronic notebook clearly states the rationale and methods for what you did when attempting to make a purple protein, but you are missing the answers to some of the questions posed in the handout. You needed to provide the amino acid sequences for the four starting flowers, an allele, color, and amino acid sequence table, and the genotype-phenotype rules.
  • Note that Valine is not an aromatic amino acid. Only Phenylalanine and Tyrosine have benzene rings, while Tryptophan has a two-ring structure.
  • In your Acknowledgments section, give a little more detail as to the nature of the collaboration with your homework partners; what were the contributions of each person?
  • In your References, please link to the Assignment 2 page because that was a main source for this week.
  • Overall, this was a good first attempt at a electronic lab notebook. In the future, don't forget to explicitly include all the answers to questions posed in the exercise.

Week 1 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 1 Assignment. Thank you for completing the bulk of the assignment on time (it is noted that you made edits to your User page past the deadline, but that the required elements were submitted on time; you also added answers to the shared journal past the deadline). I am not penalizing for late entries for the Week 1 assignment, but will do so starting with Week 2. You may make up the points you missed on this assignment by completing the requested changes by the Week 3 wiki deadline, midnight Tuesday, September 20 (Monday night/Tuesday morning).

  • You completed all of the the items in the assignment, except for the following:
    • Your snail mail address is appearing as a "run-on" sentence. It is a peculiarity of wiki syntax that if you want text to appear on a separate line, you have to put an empty line in between them, not just a single return. Alternately, you could use a bulleted list for this.
    • Your work experience on your page links only to your resume. Providing a short summary on the page would be useful.
    • You need to send me an e-mail with the answers to the e-mail questions, even if your answers are "no".
    • You wrote something in the Summary field for 54 out of 56 changes, or 96% of the time--keep up the good work--we are aiming at 100% of the time, so you're nearly there.
    • You linked your name on the course People page to your user page, but your wiki syntax does not use a label. Using a label gives a much neater appearance.
    • You have only two levels of headings; for the assignment, you need three. That means you need headers with 2, "==", 3, "===", and 4, "====" sets of equals signs.
    • You have not provided a link to a website external to the wiki.
    • You created a template with the lists of assignments and individual journals, but you are missing the list of class journals. Thus, you have missed the requirement to link to the Week 1 Class journal from your user page. You also have a stray "red link" to a template page that does not exist. You should remove this link.
    • You included the Acknowledgments section, but you need to include the statement:
      • While I worked with the people noted above, this individual journal entry was completed by me and not copied from another source.
      • Followed by your wiki signature.
    • The References section is missing entirely. It needs to be included every week. For Week 1, it can just reference the Week 1 assignment page.
    • You can delete all of the auto-text that OpenWetWare placed on your Talk page below my feedback, if you want.
  • I'm glad you enjoyed the Janovy article!

Hello, Mia Huddleston! 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.
