  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.

Week 6 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Please embed your screenshots into your page instead linking to them.
  • The protein only has 1 polypeptide chain, so it is actually a tertiary structure. You might say that it forms a quaternary structure with the DNA, but for the protein itself there is only one chain present.

Week 5 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • While you linked to an uploaded copy of the article that you found, the instructions were to give the complete bibliographic reference on your page (authors, year, title, journal, volume, page numbers).
  • The narrative on your journal page just summarized your work on your project. An electronic notebook needs to be an electronic record of everything that you did. To see an example of what this would look like, see Nicki's Week 5 page, for example.
  • Your PowerPoint uploaded to your site only included the contributions from you and Zeb. The assignment was to have your entire group's presentation uploaded by the deadline. Make sure that you coordinate this with your partners in the future.
  • Please add the links to the assignment pages to your template that you use on your journal and user page.

Week 4 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submmitting your assignment on time.
  • Your content was complete, submitting the answers to this week's questions.
  • Take care with your wiki syntax; delete stray bullet points, make sure that your links are formatted correctly, embed your figures for viewing in the page.
  • Remember to add the BIOL368/F11 category to your page. If you add this to your template and then use your template on the page, it will take care of this requirment.

Journal Club 1 Outline and Presentation Feedback

Week 3 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Your journal shows an improvement in the level of detail about your methods and results. To further improve your journals, you could include enough detail so that your procedure could be followed by someone else just be looking at your page. For example, you could link to the instructions for the activity and give the exact equations you used when doing your calculations for theta.
  • You should also work on improving your wiki syntax.
    • For example, if you are linking to a file, use the syntax [[Media:filename | label]] instead of "Image:filename".
    • You could also make better use of the different levels of headers.
  • Finally, you need to make sure that each of your journal pages has the category "BIOL368/F11". You should add this to your template and then when you use your template on subsequent wiki assignments, it will always be there.
  • I will add feedback about your outline and journal club presentation separately, later.

I answered your question on my user talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 18:50, 21 September 2011 (EDT)

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • You need to added the category "BIOL368/F11" to your journal page. The easiest way to accomplish this is to add it to your template. You could also add the link to your user page and the link to the assignment page part of your template as well.
  • For specific tasks "b" and "c", it would have been helpful for you to actually show the DNA sequences in your wiki, either through a screen shot or by pasting in the sequence.
  • You have a fairly detailed description of your methods and results, but it would have been more helpful to see more of the sequences that you were referring to so that I could tell what you mean by positions 79 and 80, for example. In the future, you do not have to separate out the methods and results, you could have method-result, method-result, method-result listed in a more narrative form.
  • You have a good, detailed conclusion. However, your questions about the behavior of the introns could have been fleshed out in more detail. Where, specifically, did the mutations take place in the intron that behaved differently?

Week 1 Redux Feedback

  • You did not go back and make the changes requested for your Week 1 Assignment, so no further points were awarded.

Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for finishing your assignment on time and completing all of the items on the wiki checklist. There are a couple of things that you need to attend to:
    • Under the Contact Info section on your user page, there are consecutive number "1"'s. This happens when you skip an empty line between your numbered points. I.e., you can't skip lines between lines that start with a #. Please fix this on your page.
    • You also need to upload and link to a non-image file (like a .doc, .ppt, .pdf) on your page.
    • Part of the assignment was to ask me a question on my user talk page that I can answer for you. Please go ahead and do this.
  • You can also feel free to delete the text automatically generated by OpenWetware that is at the bottom of this page.
