Week 6 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • When you are adding screenshots to your narrative, please display them on the page instead of having to click a link to view them.
  • The DNA glycosylase is only a tertiary structure; there is only one polypeptide chain. While we could say that it forms a quaternary structure with DNA, there is just one polypeptide in the structure.

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 by the deadline only included the contributions from you and Bobby. It was good that you had a listing of the revision history of the PowerPoints, but in the future make sure that you coordinate with your partners so that the entire PowerPoint with contributions from each group member is completed on time.
  • Please add the links to the assignment pages to your template that you use on your journal and user page.

Journal Club 1 Outline and Presentation Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Your definitions were complete, but need to be cited. Provide the URL for the web site you got the definition from and the date that you accessed it.
  • Your outline answered all of the questions, but could have provided a deeper level of detail and been a little longer.
  • You were well-prepared for discussing your figure/table in class.

Week 3 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • You provide a fair amount of detail in your narrative description of what you did, but it could still be improved by adding in the hyperlinks to the pages that you mention (NCBI, page for calculating the harmonic sum, etc.).
  • On the PubMed page referencing the Markham paper, there is a link to all of the nucleotide sequences from the paper.
  • Feedback on your outline and presentation will be made separately.

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • You should consider adding the link to the assignment page to your template.
  • For specific tasks "b" and "c", it would have been helpful for you to actually show the full 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 78-80, for example, in the context of the entire sequence. 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.
  • Histidine is not an aromatic amino acid in the same way that tryptophan, tyrosine, and phenylalanine are. It is generally considered a basic amino acid because it can be protonated, and that would affect it's ability to absorb light.

Week 1 Redux

  • Thank you for making the suggested revisions. However, you did not fix the link to your Fall schedule.

Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time. There are a couple things that you need to attend to:
    • You may not want to have your cell phone number public on the site (it's up to you).
    • Your link to your Fall 2011 schedule is not there.
    • Please remove the section on publications at the bottom of your page. (the "biblio" script isn't working and if it was, those wouldn't be links to your own publications).
  • You can also feel free to delete the text automatically generated by OpenWetware that is at the bottom of this page.

Hello, Zeb Russo! 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.
