Week 7 Journal Feedback

  • Your definitions and outline were complete and submitted on time. However, your shared journal was a little late. Make sure you give yourself enough time to complete the assignment before the deadline.
  • The definitions need to have the URL and the date accessed to make a complete citation. You should also format it so that the URL is shown as the visible label, not just as a number.
  • Also, don't forget to use your template so that the category and links appear on your page. Adding your template to the page should be the first thing you do when you start a new wiki page.

Week 6 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • DNA glycosylase is actually a tertiary structure because it only has one polypeptide chain. You might consider that because it binds to DNA, it could be a quaternary structure, but based on the protein part, it is a tertiary structure.

Week 5 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time, although I noticed that you added your template to the page after the deadline.
    • Please space out your assignment links better; they are all mushed together on one line.
  • You did not include the bibliographic reference to the paper you found on the Web of Science.
  • The narrative on your journal page just summarized your work on your project with one example. 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.

Week 4 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time and answering all of the questions.
  • Please use your template on all of your assignment pages so that you will automatically include all of the links you need to fulfill the assignment (as shown under the Week 3 feedback).

Journal Club 1 Outline and Presentation Feedback

  • This part of your Week 3 assignment was not submitted on time.
  • You did not provide citations for your definitions. You need to provide the URL from which you got the definition and the date that you accessed that web site.
  • Your outline answered all of the questions, but could have been a little more specific about how the study was compared to other studies from the discussion.
  • Also, please use your template on this page to provide all of the appropriate links to other wiki pages specified in the assignment. In the future, your outline can go on the same wiki page as that week's assignment.
  • When preparing to discuss your figure for journal club, make sure that you can give a more detailed analysis. Please come see me in office hours ahead of time to discuss it, if need be.

Week 3 Journal Feedback

  • For this week, your shared journal assignment (and journal club outline) were not submitted on time. In the future, please make sure that you start your assignments far enough in advance so that you can submit them on time.
  • You did a good job of annotating your figures on your journal to highlight the relevant information. This is a good thing to do, including for your research presentation next week.
  • To further improve your journals, you should include enough detail so that your procedure could be followed by someone else just be looking at your page. For example, you should link to the instructions for the activity or copy the relevant instructions to your page, link to any pages or files that you use, and specify the equations that you used.
  • You need to maintain a set of links to ease navigation of your pages. You should add the following to your template and then use your template on all of your assignment pages and on your user page:
    • The category "BIOL368/F11".
    • Links to all of the Assignment pages.
    • Links to all of the Class journal pages.
    • Links to all of your individual journal pages.
  • The format of one of your headings is off. Please preview your pages before saving them to make sure that they are showing what you intended.
  • I will provide feedback on the Journal Club outline separately, later.

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • You need to make sure that you include all the links asked for in the journal assignment. From your journal page you need to:
    • link back to your user page
    • link to the assignment page
    • add the "BIOL368/F11" category to the page.
  • In addition, you need to link to the class journal page from your user page.
    • If you add all of these things to your templage and then use your template on your journal page, it will automatically be taken care of. You should be sure to do this on assignments going forward.
  • For the shared journal, make sure to use your wiki signature, ~~~~, this automatically puts in the link to your user page and also stamps it with the day and time of your change.
  • As for the content of your Week 2 journal page, there was good detail in the methods and results and a good organization.
  • For part A, it would have been good to more directly answer why there can be white offspring.
  • For part C7, it would have been good to show more detail for the calculation.

Week 1 Redux Feedback

  • Thank you for completing the suggested revisions. However, there was no link to a file on your User page.

Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing this assignment on time. There are a few things that you still need to attend to:
    • Under your section on Contact Info, you can see that you have a number and a bullet point on the same line. This is because when you put the #* together, the program is assuming that the line above it was just a # and you are indenting the second line. Please go ahead and fix this to make it a bulleted or numbered list.
    • Please list all of the upper division courses you have taken in biology, chemistry, math, and computer science, including this semester.
    • You created a template, but did not actually use it on your page. To use it you need to put {{Template:shurndon}} somewhere on your user page and whereever you put it, the stuff in your template will automatically be put there.
    • You also need to upload and link to a file other than an image (such as .doc, .pdf, .ppt,).
  • You can also feel free to delete the text automatically generated by OpenWetware that is at the bottom of this page.

Hello, Samantha M. Hurndon! 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.
