Week 12 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • There is a way to only take a screenshot of the active window on your computer without the surrounding desktop. Google how to do that so you know for future assignments.
  • You only submitted three files on LionShare, two gene lists and one GO list. The assignment was to upload the files for all the significant clusters.
  • In answer to the question, how many GO terms had a correct p value < 0.05, you said 8, but there is actually 13. Since 5 genes said "<0.001" it did not filter properly since the "<" character was not recognized by Excel as a number.
  • GLN3, HMO1, and ZAP1 were found in your YEASTRACT results, but you did not answer what percentage and number of genes that they regulated in your profile.
  • You said in your journal that you were adding three genes to the network, STE12, RAP1, and FHL1. However, FHL1 is already in the network. You also did not explain why you chose these transcription factors.
  • Remember, on every individual journal page, you need to link back to the original assignment page.

Week 12 Shared Journal Feedback

  • With regard to question 4: The individual gene's p value just tells us that we would see that big of a change in gene expression due to chance, that percentage of the time. The other factors that might influence that amount of change in gene expression could be technical issues with the experiment itself. Also, the Gene Ontology terms and transcription factors are two separate considerations. GO terms are associated with a group of genes who all play a part in that process the term describes. There are some terms related to transcription and transcription factors, but most GO terms are related to other parts of a cell's physiology. YEASTRACT tells us about which transcription factors regulate a group of genes.

I received your files OK. &mdashKam D. Dahlquist 15:35, 19 April 2013 (EDT)

Week 9 Spreadsheet Feedback

  • I've reviewed the spreadsheet you submitted for the Week 9 Assignment. For the calculation of the T statistic, you used the function "STDEVP" instead of "STDEV". "STDEVP" is only appropriate when you have data for the whole population, not a sample of the population, which we have. You will need to correct this before moving on to the Week 12 assignment.

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. On the Week 1 shared journal page, put the link to your user page underneath the header for your section.
    2. You are writing something in the summary field some of the time; the goal is to fill it out every time you make a change.
    3. Your external link needs a label. What you did works, but it would be better to use the complete wiki syntax. I.e., use [ UCLA Clinical Microbiology Laboratory], which looks like this: UCLA Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, instead of just [1].
    4. The category is missing on your page.
    5. While you have created a template and used it, you are not taking full advantage of it. To make your template useful for you, 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. If you put it in your template and then invoke the template, you will never forget to put it in your journal page.

Paul, I answered your question on my user talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 19:59, 24 January 2013 (EST)

You asked "What first got you interested in pursuing a career in mathmatics? Paul Magnano 02:40, 22 January 2013 (EST)"

My answer: I was always interested in math from early on, but I started out college in engineering. Found the first courses pretty boring. In the process of floundering around for a new major, I met a math professor who was consulting for NASA on spaceflight stuff, and that got me pretty interested.

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • Thanks for delineating the variables. Which ones are "states"? which are parameters?
  • Thanks also for writing down the parameter values. Makes it much easier to interpret the results.
  • Your observations are interesting. Cell growth seems to correlate negatively with nutrient availability. What do you think of that?
  • Nice collection of graphs, and thanks for including them. For the future, you may want to learn how to save the graphs as jpegs rather than doing screen caps. But screen caps are better than nothing!
  • I like your proposal of waste/cell dependence. Can you integrate that idea into the model?

Hello, Paul Magnano! 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.
